Pump + Grind, on Stephenson Place, is shuttered-up with a message posted in the window confirming it is no longer trading.

The message urges anyone with queries to contact Matlock insolvency company Seneca.

Ahead of the independent venue’s opening in December 2017, bosses hoped Pump + Grind would ‘firmly establish itself within Chesterfield's burgeoning food and drink scene and become a cornerstone of local daily life’.
