The refurbished Fenwick’ on the main A683 road at Claughton caught the nation’s attention back in 2007 when, as the Fenwick Arms’, it featured in Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares’ TV series.

The celebrity chef famously launched his Campaign for Real Gravy from the pub and the Fenwick staff hit the streets serving up Yorkshire Puddings topped with Gordon’s “real” gravy.

Now it latest has become the latest in an award-winning portfolio of the Seafood Pub Company.

Managing director of the company, Joycelyn Neve re-launches The Fenwick’ on June 6.

She 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

“That’s why we have grown from Blackburn to Downham in the Ribble Valley, northward to Claughton in the Forest of Bowland and, soon, westward to Great Eccleston on the Fylde.”

In August the fourth gastro pub will be added when a refurbished Farmers Arms’ opens at Great Eccleston north of Preston on the Garstang to Blackpool road.

They join the Assheton Arms’ at Downham which Joycelyn took over after famously beating TV celebrity chef Marco Pierre White to win the lease from Lord and Lady Clitheroe and a premises in Blackburn.
