Property Overview

The Property

A substantial property, planned over three floors, situated in a prominent position. The property is Grade II Listed, and has traded successfully as a restaurant with rooms and bar, for the past twenty-four years, and is only available due to retirement of the present owner.

The property is believed to have been built over three centuries. The principal construction is coarse stone, of a three-storey structure, under a pitched tile-clad roof, with gable ends. There are both single-storey and two-storey additions to the rear, together with cellar.


Belper is a popular Market Town located approximately eight-miles to the north of the City of Derby, and forms part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. The property is situated at the junction of Belper Lane with Ashbourne Road, the A517, and is within easy walking distance of Belper town centre, and conveniently located for Belper Mills, and the River Gardens.


When leaving Derby city centre by vehicle, proceed along the A6 Duffield Road, continuing over the Palm Court traffic island and through Allestree, and Duffield. Continue through Belper still on the A6 Bridge Street, and at the traffic lights just before Belper Mills, turn left onto Bridge Foot, following the road and over the bridge to find the Talbot Hotel on the corner with Bridge Foot and Belper Lane.
