Situated in the heart of Derby’s Cathedral Quarter, The Distillery is an independent brewery aiming to revoke the traditional elements of bartending. At this stylish bar on Friar Gate in the city centre, hip industrial-style decor, gourmet comfort food and some of the world’s finest distilled spirits combine together to create one of the Derby’s hottest haunts. To avoid disappointment, booking a table at The Distillery in advance is recommended.

Booked a table for the husband’s birthday meal, never been before, but the whole affair was faultless. The service, the value for money and the food was amazing! We will definitely return, thank you 😊
They catered for my boyfriend’s birthday brilliantly. The food was delicious!
It was way too noisy, the food was greasy and piled up like a chip shop. The waitress was lovely but really it was apparent that food was a second thought over the bar. This should be made clear in their marketing.
Whether it is for lunch, dinner or drinks in Derby city centre, The Distillery is a failsafe choice. With an extensive selection of bourbon, blended whisky, Irish whisky, and Scottish malts, The Distillery, located in the Cathedral Quarter, is a dream for whisky connoisseurs, and you’ll find a hoard of craft beers, wines and champagnes and a lengthy cocktail list on the menu as well.
Of course, great drinks need great food to go along with it and at The Distillery you could feast on a sharing board like the low & slow (barbequed pulled pork, Jack Daniels chilli beef, whisky smoked chicken, house salad, warm flatbread, slaw and root chips) or tuck into a main course. We recommend the Guinness stew (British mutton braised in a rich Guinness liquor with root vegetables and potato dumplings) or the baked sea bass. On Sundays through to Fridays between 12 and 7pm, be sure to take advantage of the Prosecco Platter deal, and get any sharer dish and a bottle of prosecco for £19.95. To guarantee a table at The Distillery on Derby’s Friar Gate in the city centre, make a reservation in advance.
