New look Stables Cafe to reopen at Belton House with dog cafe
Belton’s new-look Stables Café will re-open later this month with a brand new dog café.
After four years of planning visitors will finally be able to see the results of the National Trust property’s largest conservation project to date. As well as serving daily home baked cakes, scones and brunch with hot lunches and a regularly changing menu to reflect the seasons, visitors will also be able to enjoy service to their table too.
A new dog-friendly indoor seating area ‘Pup and Saucer’ is located at the rear of the cafe, serving a tasty menu for canine visitors as well as a tennis ball vending machine.
The National Trust has secured the future of the building with the help of specialist craftspeople. Paint shades have been carefully matched to the original seventeenth-century decorative schemes and new seating has been fitted within the stalls, giving a contemporary look within the historic space.
General manager Ian Cooper said: “The café will offer a unique dining experience within a historic setting. The stables are an exceptionally significant example of their type but were in urgent need of conservation.”
