Café Allez
The Engine Yard
Belvoir Castle
Grantham NG32 1PE

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.

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!

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 (all subject to availability).

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. 

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.”


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.
