Derby’s Largest Coaching Inn

The Belfry history starts with The Old Bell’s ‘Bell’ which lived in the Belfry rooms for many years. The famous bell hung from the corner of the smallest room and when you visit The Belfry you can still see the ‘Bell’ hanging in the corner fully restored and on show for everyone to see.
