BEAR was conceived out of a passion, not just to offer great coffee, but also to create a great environment in which to enjoy it. Founded in 2014, it was the realisation of a vision that co-founder Craig Bunting had in Australia whilst enjoying such an experience and wondering why he was unable to do so back in the UK.

BEAR now serves sustainably sourced, speciality coffee, seasonal fresh food, cocktails & craft beer in beautifully thought out spaces.

The friendships and networks that can grow from within the group have already proved to be invaluable to us, and encouraged us to take advantage of all of the new and exciting opportunities that may not have otherwise found us.

Derby is a city of culture and creatives.

There are already a number of businesses that reflect and enhance this, particularly in the food and drink industry.

Derby is blessed with a number of brilliant, new independent businesses (especially around the Cathedral Quarter - we're surrounded by very good company!), which is exciting and encouraging as it is the success and growth of these small businesses that will ultimately have the most positive impact on Derby's future.
