About Us

Ultimate mountain bikers destination!

The Dorset is a great place to base yourself while riding the world renowned Blue Derby mountain bike trails.

Icy cold craft beers and ciders, (and a growing wine list), great food, affordable accommodation, and mountain bike friendly facilities all under one roof, make The Dorset the most convenient option for your mountain biking adventures in Derby.

We’re a three minute pedal from the trail head, and located between MAD MTB and Vertigo MTB whom provide bike hire and shuttle services.

Derby is also a popular stopover for tourists on their way to the East Coast, particularly motorbike riders who enjoy the winding scenic route. Derby has a rich history of tin mining that can be explored at local museums. Come and speak to us for more information on the area’s attractions.

Excellent Pub Grub.

We are very excited to be employing highly regarded, local chef, Sharryn Spencer and her sister, Patricia Spencer who will be providing excellent pub meals with a few of their own twists.

Neil Perry recently wrote a review on Sharryn’s pot pie, which featured in the QANTAS magazine. Come on in and try it!
