Welcome to the Assheton Arms

Country pub perfection!

Scroll to explore

A picture-perfect pub in a picture-perfect village…in a… yes, picture-perfect setting too.

The flagstone floors, low ceilings and ancient timbers create an ambience and atmosphere just oozing with history, character and charm. If these walls could talk, we would all stop and listen.

The thoughtful décor, furnishings and lighting bring warmth and friendliness to the cosiest of cosy pubs! Whether you’re popping in for a drink or a bite to eat, or packing your bags for a night away, the warmth of the welcome will be exactly the same.
