The bar, which is owned by Christina and Daniel Power, serves breakfast and pastries in the morning as well as lunches and tapas.

Drinks include real ales, craft beer, wines, prosecco and cocktails.

When the bar, brasserie and delicatessen opened last August, Daniel Power told the Derbyshire Times: “We are proud to be moving into this prestigious area and extremely excited about working with other local businesses, helping to give Chesterfield and its visitors a greater eating and drinking experience.”

The Abacus closed last January after the company which ran it, Enjoy Pubs, was shut down following an insolvency investigation.

Before that, the building was home to the Barracuda bar.
