The Derby Arms is a rather handsome partially thatched pub set in the tranquil rural village of Treales near Preston, Lancashire.Inside you’ll find open fires, old beams and a great big bar plus the odd twist or two that befits the quirkiness of this beautiful countryside pub. We are proud to offer freshly-made, locally-sourced food combined with table service with a range of cask ales and hand selected wines.
