The Old Bell Hotel

Welcome to the Old Bell Hotel, located in the historic Cathedral Quarter right in the heart of the city of Derby.

Having recently undergone a £1,2000,000 renovation, this 375 year old former coaching Inn has been restored to its former glory and is the perfect place for all the family to eat, drink and be entertained.

With four bars, 3 function rooms and our award winning fine dining restaurant Zest the Old Bell continues to be at the centre of Derby’s food, drink and entertainment scene.
