The Old Bell Hotel is one of Derby's last surviving coaching inns and one of the city's oldest bars and restaurants.

Built in 1650 it was once considered to be one of the most prestigious Inns outside of London.

Set in the heart of Derby’s historic Cathedral Quarter, we offer a unique eatery with drinks galore in stunning surroundings. Having recently undergone an extensive restoration, our beautiful interiors with many original features, make The Old Bell a great pub, meeting place and event venue.

Whether enjoying the sun in our Historic courtyard or sitting by a roaring fire in our Tudor Bar on a cold winters night there is something for everyone at The Old Bell.
