Had a lovely meal with friends. Good range of food. Attentive & friendly staff, warm & comfortable atmosphere. Seem to have good repeat regular customers from the comments I overheard. Close to Holcombe Village, Holcombe Hill & Ramsbottom for a nice trip combination.


Called in for Sunday evening meal after a boring shopping trip with my wife. Always a great welcome from the staff and nothing is too much trouble. My wife had a starter followed by cheese pie. I had the burger which was delicious. They even made it to my special request of removing standard stuff to add other. It was amazing. Great food and always fantastic service. Thanks guys.

Consistently Good

Once a year I travel from Sydney to visit relatives in the area and every year I try new places to eat. As much as I like to explore, every year I find myself taking the relatives back to the Duckworth Arms and we’ve never been disappointed. I’ve tried heaps of places around the area but the Duckworth is It’s the only venue I’ve gone back to every single year.
