Nestled within the historically narrow streets of Knutsford and lined within the hotchpotch of quaint buildings on King Street, The Belle Epoque is a whimsical location that boasted a large part in the heritage of the town for over one hundred years. The gifted novelist, Elizabeth Gaskell chose to base her renowned novel ‘Cranford’, around the town of Knutsford, and today is remembered through the Gaskell Memorial Tower, which is part of the Belle Epoque grounds.
Both equally charming and ambient, there are two Ceremony Rooms to choose from; accommodating up to one hundred guests, you’ll find the glamorous Pink Room. With black and gold glass panelling and decorative art nouveau detailing, this space is warm, romantic and vibrant. For a slightly more intimate setting, select the beguiling Palliards Room. With twinkling lights and a subtle, yet enchanting décor, this space can accommodate up to eighty guests comfortably.
For over forty years, The Belle Epoque has only brought diners the finest quality ingredients and produce from suppliers they know and trust. Sourcing locally wherever possible, they purchase from local farmers and small artisan producers close by. All of their meat is raised and grazed in certified farms from around Cheshire, and is hung for a minimum of 21 days. What’s more, The Belle Epoque also grow their own organic garlic and herbs on site, which is used exclusively in their kitchens.
