About Iron Gate, Derby

From building society, to bank, to BEAR – this ornate old banking hall site on Derby’s Iron Gate stood empty and forgotten for 9 long years… until we came along.

BEAR Iron Gate, Derby sits slap-bang in the centre of the city’s iconic and beautiful Cathedral Quarter; the original hotspot for high-quality food and drink. Opening in 2017 following the success of our Uttoxeter store, the progression to Derby seemed natural for BEAR, as our two founders spent a lot of time in the city as teens, so they have loads of fun memories attached to the place.

BEAR HQ is based in a little office at the back of this store, so since moving in we've built a home here, made some great friends and worked on loads of exciting partnerships locally and nationally. Oh, and we don't mean to boast, but our signature Espresso Martini is (seriously) the best in town. Don’t believe us? Come and see for yourself.

Brunch at BEAR

Brunch

Second to coffee, brunch is our bag. From Eggs Benedict to Shakshuka, you're bound to find some old staples and some exciting new things to try.

Ordering via the app was easy, food was delicious and our server was very friendly.
