Restaurant description

Set within a refurbished public house, The Belle is at the heart of the vibrant village of Bassingbourn-cum-Kneesworth, just outside the market town of Royston. Relax and unwind in a cosy interior dotted with sofas and armchairs, or in the charming garden in fine weather.

The Belle is a restaurant and bar that offers brilliantly cooked simplicity with a seasonally changing menu with British Ingredients but also with the flavour and vibrancy of the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean.

From the drinks list enjoy an endless list of gins, spirits and exotic cocktails. The Belle also has two bars and a private dining room, offering beers and wines as it should. Sit on the sumptuous sofas or cosy armchairs with friends to chat or make new ones at the bar while having a chilled night out or celebrating that something special till late into the night.

The Belle in Bassingbourn-cum-Kneesworth is an 8-minute drive from Royston Rail Station.

    Good we had, was ok but lacking in seasoning. My friend ordered mackerel for main and it came in such a small portion on the plate, I thought it's a small starter. The burger though was presented nicely on the wood board. There was a testing night and I think the staff was focused on those people more, which is disappointing.

    We had an excellent Sunday roast lunch, service was great and the pub interior is beautiful. Definitely going back soon.

    This is the first time we have had a Business meeting at the Belle since attending the opening after refurbishment. It was a great place to meet one of our Suppliers to discuss their Products and Services over a nice lunch. We all had the Burger dish which we found very tasty and was served up in a wonderful smoky covered plate. Our Supplier was very impressed with the place and enjoyed the meeting.

    Fantastic selection of gin and a relaxing environment in which to drink it. Nothing was too much trouble. Menu was interesting and met expectations. Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime with friends.

    Good food, tasty and very well presented. Service was excellent, young staff but obviously very well coached by the management in being attentive without being intrusive. Nice decor, surroundings and good music. If I was being very critical I would suggest more atmospheric lighting. Overall thoroughly recommended - thanks for a fabulous evening!
