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 – the River trail starts in our Beer Garden, and takes you past the suspension bridge and pump track straight to the Trail Head.

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.

Mountain biking is hard work, but we have the perfect antidote. Tasty and generous portions prepared by our wonderful kitchen staff will get you refuelled for your next big day on the trails. Check out our Facebook and Google reviews.
