We stopped here for lunch while visiting the cathedral. The service was fast, particularly considering the size of our group. The food was good, with ample portions, and good value for money. The staff were friendly and polite.

Situated right in the cloisters you can come here during your visit to the cathedral, this is a lovely place to rest the legs and have a cup of tea or coffee, a piece of cake of a sandwich.

After visiting the Museum of Royal Worcs. this cafe is close by. We ordered sandwiches and tea - but when they came they had miserly fillings and the accompaniments (a small handful of salad and a few crisps) were derisory. Would not repeat the experience.More
