Restaurant description

Set within a refurbished public house in the South Cambridgeshire countryside, 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 an award-winning fusion restaurant and bar that offers brilliantly cooked simplicity with a seasonally changing menu with locally sourced ingredients but also with the flavour and vibrancy of the East Mediterranean.

From the drinks list enjoy an endless list of gins, spirits and exotic cocktails that are garnished with British produce and served with specially selected mixers. 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.

    Took my mum for lunch the day before lockdown as we won't be able to go out for a month. The staff at the Belle made us feel really welcome. The food was excellent, as always.

    A beautifully cooked meal, in gorgeous surroundings and served by brilliant staff. The free flowing prosecco was a delight too!

    All three of us found decor and Covid safety very good. One burger, two fish & chips excellent. Desserts good portion size and delicious. Fantastic to have the special rate set menu - I have spread the word about the very good value, service and food. Thank you Ann

    Italian night at The Belle did NOT disappoint!! The food was out of this world along with the various wines that complimented every course. The amazing food was accompanied by great service and incredible attention to detail as ever. At a time when we’re all experiencing such difficulty in relaxing out of the house, it was refreshing to feel comfortable. It was clear to see from the onset that The Belle have worked very hard to provide a comfortable, relaxed, Covid secure environment. Looking forward to next months destination and menu. (although, may need to pop in and enjoy the Free Flowing Prosecco evening on a Friday evening again) and of course the cocktails ??
