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.

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.

Friday & Saturday nights were made for easy food, beers & cocktails. 🤝

Grab a glass of red and share a pizza with your pals, or treat yo'self to a big-stack burger and an Espresso Martini. 🍔🍸

Whatever your vibe, count us in.
