Statement from Downham Estate

Visitors to Downham Village should be aware that the Assheton Arms is currently closed.  This is because the tenant – The Seafood Pub Company - was last month placed into Administration. We hope that a new tenant/operator for the business will be found in due course.  Anyone owed money by ‘The Assheton Arms’ should contact the Seafood Pub Company’s administrators, Ryan Grant and Kerry Bailey from BDO LLP – email:

Pre-booked meals and accommodation are available at Greendale View Kitchen just ¼ mile outside the village:

and on sunny days you can enjoy ice creams, teas and light refreshments from Downham’s little Ice Cream parlour on Hare Green at the bottom of the village.
