Seafood Pub Company expands to four inns

Simon Donohue

Two new openings will double the size of the Seafood Pub Company estate to four.

The Fenwick will be relaunched in the Lune Valley of Claughton, near Lancaster, in June, while the refurbished Farmers Arms at Great Eccleston, north of Preston, will open in August.

The Seafood Pub Company opened its first restaurant, The Oyster & Otter, in Feniscowles, near Blackburn, in 2011.

Its second pub launch was the Assheton Arms at Downham in the Ribble Valley.

The Seafood Pub Company is operated by father and daughter team Joycelyn and Chris Neve, a Fleetwood fish wholesaler, and international chef Antony Shirley.

Joycelyn Neve said: "The brand allows each of our pubs to build its own character, but everything centres on providing customers with consistent qualities that they know to expect – exceptional quality locally sourced food, cooked and presented in the straightforward uncomplicated way that it should be.

"That's the reputation we have earned, that's why people enjoy us, and that's why we have grown from Blackburn in the south, eastward to Downham in the Ribble Valley, northward to Claughton in the Forest of Bowland and, soon, westward to Great Eccleston on the Fylde."
