The Assheton Arms, Downham

The Assheton Arms at Downham - Lancashire Life’s Dining Pub of the Year - is an historic Grade II listed village pub in the untouched conservation village of Downham. With stunning views across Ribble Valley to the legendary Pendle Hill, the uniqueness of the village has made Downham a popular TV and film location since the 60’s.

This traditional 18th century inn, perfect for family meals out, comes alive in the evening with a great atmosphere where you can expect the highest quality, locally sourced food, cooked and presented to perfection.

The best seasonal fish comes automatically from the North West’s most prominent seafood dynasty. Chris Neve has a trusted name that operated its own fleet of trawlers, delivered to restaurants, hotels and caterers throughout the country, to luxury liners like the QE2, and exported to the continent. He now supplies his daughter Joycelyn – managing director of the Seafood Pub Company which operates the Assheton Arms along with the Oyster & Otter at Blackburn, The Fenwick at Claughton near Lancaster and the Farmers Arms at Great Eccleston.

But it’s by no means exclusively  ‘same day’ seafood – on the plate within hours of being caught - there are also high quality signature meat, poultry and game dishes from the best Lancashire suppliers.

Open Monday to Thursday 12 noon - 11pm; Friday to Saturday 12 noon – midnight; Sunday 12 noon - 10.30pm. For food service times please see the website.

The Seafood Pub Company operates The Farmers Arms along with the Oyster & Otter at Blackburn, The Assheton Arms at Downham and The Fenwick at Claughton near Lancaster – all of which have private dining facilities that are available for business and family functions from corporate events to romantic wedding receptions in some of the north west’s most atmospheric country pubs.
