If you’re planning a day trip to the Engine Yard at Belvoir Castle for a spot of retail therapy, you might want to check out The Fuel Tank Kitchen for some light refreshments, or grab a takeaway to eat as you explore the exquisite Castle grounds? Why not treat yourself to a piece of cake and a fresh coffee at the end of a muddy dog walk, or indulge in a delicious hearty lunch whilst you catch up with friends while the children explore the nearby Play Park?  

Sitting at the heart of the Engine Yard, surrounded by a variety of other unique outlets, The Fuel Tank Kitchen spans the ground floor of the lovingly refurbished historic site of the original water pumping station for the Castle, extending outdoors to a large covered seating area. Inside, the cafe’s traditional atmosphere, enhanced by exposed brick walls, wooden beams and flooring, serves up plenty of hot and cold snacks and drinks to keep your own tank full at all times.
