Gastro restaurant to open in Strutt St

A new gastro restaurant is set to open in Belper’s Strutt Street within the next few weeks.

Graze, which already has one eatery in Friargate, Derby is set to launch a pizzeria, cocktail lounge and restaurant serving modern British cuisine.

The restaurant will seat up to 80 people and the venue will feature acoustic music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Owners have applied to Amber Valley Borough Council for a licence to stage live music and play recorded music on any day between 10am and 1am.

They are also seeking approval to serve alcohol every day between the same hours and have recently advertised for staff including a sous chef and restaurant supervisor.
