BELLE & JEROME
CAFE & RESTAURANT
Opened in Febraury 2009, Belle & Jerome is situated in the heart of Beeston life. We are an independently owned continental style café and restaurant that is proud to be that little bit different - the wine list is not secondary to the food, and the importance we place upon the service of fabulous coffee is inspired by the café culture of our European neighbours.
By day, we are a lively café serving satisfying & indulgent breakfasts and freshly cooked lunches alongside probably the best Fairtrade coffee in town. In the evening absorb the understated sophistication as this versatile venue transforms into a suave bistro & restaurant, to transport you to a little corner of the continent.
Our food menu has been designed and priced to complement our drinks, with all our dishes freshly created on site. So whether you are after a wickedly rich homemade chocolate brownie to accompany your afternoon Fairtrade coffee, or one of our continental style sharing platters while working your way through our incredible wine list, Belle & Jerome has something up its stylish sleeve.
We aim not to be your ordinary café or wine bar; we offer friendly and attentive table service throughout the day, allowing you to avoid the usual Saturday night crush at the bar and providing a totally relaxed and refined feel for the more discerning customer.

If you would like to hold your own private wine tasting evening at Belle & Jerome, we would be happy to organise this for you. Please call us on 0115 9677779 and ask to speak to the manager to discuss specific requirements. Alternatively, go to our Contact page and send us a message, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We have gone to great lengths to put our wine list together, and each bottle has been personally selected on it's own individual merits. Of course, we can't guarantee that every bottle will be to everyone's tastes, but what we can guarantee is that each one is a fine example of the variety and region that it represents. We think that our list offers a diverse range of wines from all corners of the world, with a great balance between New World purity and Old World experience.
If you are interested in learning more about wines and would like to join us at one of our informal wine tasting evenings, please visit our ‘Upcoming Events’ page, or subscribe to our mailing list for regular email updates.

Many factors go into making the perfect coffee; one of the most important is the quality of the bean. At Belle & Jerome we use the "House Espresso" blend from local artisan roasters: 200 Degrees Coffee Roasters, based here in Nottingham. Our coffee is hand roasted to order by Tim at 200 Degrees and delivered weekly to ensure maximum freshness.
Every espresso shot we make uses 7.5g of freshly ground coffee. This is slightly stronger than many other coffee houses, but creates the perfect full-bodied espresso that doesn't get lost in a latte or cappuccino. Because we use one shot in our small coffees and two shots in our larger cups, the two sizes will vary slightly in strength of flavour, with the larger size being slightly stronger in comparison.
Our evening bistro menu in Beeston is available from 5pm, Monday to Saturday. All our food is freshly prepared in our kitchen, from locally sourced products where possible.
EARLY BIRD MENU: Dine with us between 5pm and 7pm, Monday-Friday, or 4-6pm on Saturdays, and choose 2 courses from our special menu for only £11.50, or three courses for £14.95. Now also available all night on Mondays!.
