Belvoir Castle’s new food and drink development will be an exciting addition to the East Midlands

Belvoir Castle’s new Engine Yard development is located a few hundred yards from the Castle and will be an exciting addition to the East Midlands’ food and drink scene.

Scheduled to open in June 2018, The Engine Yard will be home to a café with a pop-up restaurant and upstairs events space, a wine bar, a butchery, a deli and a children’s play area. Luxury shops and a spa will complete the mix.

This new food and drink hub will also host events throughout the year, such as BBQ evenings, cookery demonstrations, foodie talks, farmers’ markets, craft fairs and children’s activity experiences.

Created from a cluster of 19th century buildings originally used to service the 15,000-acre Belvoir Estate, the Engine Yard’s sensitive conversion is costing around £2.4m.

The Engine Yard team would like to talk to food and drink businesses interested in teaming up to run pop-up events. For details, please email
