One of the nicest BLT's I have had in a very long time! Served with a salad and crisps! The ambiance of room is cosy country-cottage and an annex of the Cathedral. Worth every penny.

We called in here on three occasions to have lunch here whilst on holiday. They offered a good selection of cakes, snacks, sandwiches and afternoon teas as well as catering for gluten free diets. Lovely setting and helpful staff. Reasonably priced.

What a farce ordered a beef sandwich on granary and the bread was so stale it resembled corrugated cardboard. Even the crisps on the side were stale. Deplorable.

After a wonderful tour of the magnificent cathedral my partner and I decided on a light lunch at the Cloister Cafe. The cakes on the counter looked scrumptious but it was the prawn sandwiches and a pork pie ploughmans which was ordered. We looked forward...More

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.

Went to the cathedral and decided to have a bite to eat. The food was simple , very reasonably priced and good. It's a smal place and was full. Would definitely pop in again
