Belton's Stables Café

The stables cafe at Belton House, Lincolnshire.

After four years of planning and 18 months of construction work, the Stables is now reopen.

This summer, Belton’s newly conserved and refurbished Stables Café will offer you an entirely different dining experience within this beautiful historic setting. The Stables were first built in 1685, and are one of only a few Grade 1 listed stables in the country.

As part of Belton’s largest conservation project to date, we’ve protected the future of the building by preserving and repurposing the building, using the skills and expertise of traditional craftspeople.

We’ve taken special care to match the paint shades to those of the original seventeenth-century decorative schemes, and stylish contemporary seating now fits cosily within the stalls where the Brownlow family once cared for their horses at Belton.

The café is now open daily serving freshly baked fruit and cheese scones, brunch until 12noon and lunch between 12noon - 3.30pm. Regularly changing menus promise to reflect the seasons while National Trust staples such as the Victoria Sponge are also available.

Pup and Saucer

Belton's new dog-friendly indoor seating area is located at the rear of the stables, where there’s not only a space to escape any sudden showers, but also a tasty menu for canine visitors as well as a tennis ball vending machine. On warmer days, the stable yard offers extra outdoor seating so you can sit out and enjoy the sunshine.
