Welcome to Cafe Allez! Belvoir Castle!

You’ll find us at the top of the main visitor car park for Belvoir Castle, which is in the heart of the Vale of Belvoir, between Nottingham and Grantham. Parking is plentiful and free for your first hour.
‘Belvoir’ (pronounced ‘Beaver’ around here) translates as ‘beautiful view’ and that is exactly what we offer you, either from our breakfast bar (the best seats in the house!) or from our extensive outdoor seating. From our elevated position you can see down into the Vale and out to the surrounding villages, Nottingham and beyond.

About your coffee shop

We're a coffee shop, proudly serving coffee roasted by 200 Degrees, the renowned Nottingham roaster who we’ve partnered with from day one. You’ll also find decaf coffee sourced from Cherizena, the coffee and tea merchants based across the road at The Engine Yard retail village along with a range of speciality teas – and the best hot chocolate around!

Home baking and local produce

We bake most of our scones and cakes and we always offer at least one Gluten Free cake, along with vegan options including our legendary Cherry Bakewell*.
We are also proud to source and feature local produce, such as bread from Grantham bakery Bloomsbury (including their fabulous sourdough); sausages from The Country Victualler at The Engine Yard and ice cream from Thaymar Dairy Ice Cream, a family firm in Retford, Nottinghamshire.

Keeping You Safe

We have forged a reputation for keeping customers and team members safe during the pandemic. This can begin even before your visit as you can opt to ‘click and collect’ via Good Eats. We’ve been proud to hold a 5 star FSA ‘Scores on the Doors’ food hygiene accreditation since we opened. Further, we are certified with Visit England’s ‘We’re Good To Go’ pandemic safety scheme and also the World Travel & Tourism Council ‘Safe Travels’ scheme.

There’s no face to face contact with our staff; we actively encourage contactless payment (including all major credit cards, Apple Pay and Android Pay) and if you prefer to order in person, you’ll be safely doing so outdoors with socially distanced queueing.

Hand sanitisers are freely available for your use.

Cycling, walking, riding or driving here?

You’ll find our coffee shop to be a relaxed space and well behaved dogs are welcome. Our theme has a nod to cycling, which reflects both our passion for riding and the thriving cycling scene in the Vale of Belvoir: if you’re on a bike you can use our track pump or fill your bidons for free: we also stock a range of ‘get you home’ bike spares. But equally welcome are locals, dog walkers, Castle visitors and horse riders. Feel free to enjoy our wifi and to charge your ‘phone, laptop or cycle computer while you relax.

How to find us

We’re at the top of the main visitor car park for Belvoir Castle and parking (for bikes and cars alike) is plentiful and free. We’re between Grantham, Nottingham and Melton Mowbray. Set your sat nav to NG32 1PE.
