Nourish at No. 44
You’ll find Nourish at No. 44 on King Street in the picturesque market town of Belper, Derbyshire. It was named ‘Best Restaurant/Cafe/Bistro’ in the Great Food Club Awards 2017/18.
The team pride themselves on running a privately owned, independent business. The menu is filled with top quality locally sourced ingredients, which they showcase on a blackboard behind the counter.
Nourish is open for breakfast through to dinner. By day it’s a busy café serving lunch, coffees and handmade cakes; at night it transforms into an intimate, stylish, candle-lit bistro offering an individual twist on French and British classics.
In 2016, following their much-deserved success, Nourish at No. 44 underwent an extensive £100k refurbishment, opening upstairs and doubling the amount of space for diners.
In the Great Food Club Awards 2017/18, our judges said of Nourish:
“This was a fiendish category to judge, with just two-and-a-half points separating all five contenders. Shading it, however, is this cafe/bistro in the market town of Belper, Derbyshire. The team here show just how much can be achieved by hard work, passion, an eye for detail and a love for well-cooked, locally sourced food. Nourish at No 44 works incredibly hard to beat gravity and rise above the status of generic town centre cafe to become something far classier. And it’s this heroic effort to do something special and to do it with pride, that convinced us that it should win against some truly brilliant opposition. By day Nourish at No 44 is a pleasant cafe but it’s on weekend evenings that it really shows its quality through local sourcing, impressive cooking, excellent service and a wonderful dining atmosphere.”
