Spotlight on: The Old Bell Hotel

Sat 19 Mar 2016

The Old Bell Hotel is Derby's largest and last surviving coaching Inn, built in 1650 it was once considered to be one of the most prestiguous inns outside of London.

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

The Old Bell Hotel will host a variety of comical talent this year, with Funhouse Comedy Club, Patrick Monahan, Croft and Pearce and Twisted Tongues taking place in their Ballroom and Amadeus Martin performing in the Tudor Bar.

The Grand Regency Ballroom is a very flexible room, able to cater for weddings, parties, music, theatre and of course...comedy. The seating arrangements can be altered to maximise capacity, ultimately making it a fantastic venue for an intimate comedy gig.

The Tudor Bar is one of the oldest and most traditional parts of the building with a traditional open fire in the centre of the room. With a small and intimate environment the bar offers a unique atmosphere that is steeped in history.
