Nourish at No. 44

Member offer:

Two courses for £15 Wednesday and Thursday evenings (excluding themed events). Please mention Great Food Club when booking and present your card when settling the bill; not to be used in conjunction with other offers

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.”

    Service and food is excellent.
    I am vegetarian and the platters and salads are wonderful.

    The food and service at Nourish 44 are always first class. It is our ‘go to’ place to eat at any time of the day, for an extra special breakfast, lunch or evening meal. Always recommend to others and have never heard a bad report.

  6. Avatar Karen power says:

    Stunning restaurant. Staff go over and above to make sure you have a excellent dining experience. Food was outstanding, and now they have opened a cocktail bar upstairs, would highly recommend a visit. 5 stars.

  7. Avatar Jed Illsley says:

    We keep going back and are never disappointed, beautiful steaks and homemade chips to die for.
    Looking forward to Sunday lunch next.

  8. Avatar Kris Plumley says:

    I have eaten at Nourish, a lot. Both as a bistro cafe during the day or as a alacart restaurant in the evening. For me, my wife, and friends I have taken or business meals I have hosted, I have never eaten a poor meal or heard anything but great feedback from my table. Over the years I’ve eaten at Michelin star restaurants, Nourish, I believe are able to produce food of that quality.

  9. Avatar John Thornhill says:

    Spectacular food and impeccable service is something rare to find but the team at Nourish at 44 manage to deliver every time!

    A great menu with thoughtfully selected, locally sourced ingredients creating well cooked, beautifully presented food.
    Stand out dishes for me include the pigeon entre (best I’ve ever tasted) and the superb locally sourced steaks.

    As if this wasn’t enough the wine list features some real gems at very reasonable prices…and there’s a killer cocktail and craft beer selection too!

    The service at Nourish is absolutely top notch, always attentive but never invasive – management and staff make you feel really welcome and valued.

    I’d describe atmosphere as perfect for all occasions with both intimate and social dining spaces. There are some great live musicians in the upstairs bar area adding a lovely twist to a special occasion dining experience.

    If only all restaurants were this good!

  10. Avatar Sue Doyle says:

    I have been to Nourish at No 44 numerous times & I will continue to go & eat their delicious food for years to come! Nourish is great for sooo many reasons. I love how they’re able to completely change the atmosphere between lunch time to evening fine dining. One of the most important things – their food is DELICIOUS!! The service is always great & their staff are very friendly & helpful. I am yet to leave Nourish feeling disappointed & im always left wanting to plan my next visit!

  26. Avatar Gwen Bednall says:

    Lovely atmosphere. Superb decor. Friendly, professional staff and more than excellent food!!

  27. Avatar Boycie. says:

    Many people may walk past this place and just think it’s a trendy coffee shop and bistro.
    But if you have dined here you’ll know there’s more to it than lunches and coffee.
    The evening sees it transform into a great restaurant and entertainment venue, now the upstairs has been added to the business it takes the whole place to another level, (literally!)
    Those who have tried the food will know it’s high class, on the Friday and Saturday there’s live entertainment that complements and ends a great experience also.
    Add to this the fantastic south facing garden out the back, and I think this place has everything.

  28. Avatar Sharon & Carl Coalbourne says:

    Nourish @ No 44, Belper –

    Absolutely amazing food,

    Wide selection of wine,
    beers & spirits, not forgetting the yummy cocktails,

    Venue & atmosphere second to none, live entertainment ( Friday & Saturday) brilliant,

    Hosts Ali, Perry & Team give you the most fantastic dining experience.

  29. Avatar Dave Baggott says:

    Title says it all !
    This is simply the best restaurant my wife and I have eaten in.

    The food is sublime, the service always attentive and professional, yet without being over bearing.
    The ambience makes it feel almost homely and nice and relaxed.

    We now live 15000 miles away, and yet we still compare every restaurant we eat at to Nourish.
    We still haven’t found better !!

    Please come and set up one in Oz !
