I arranged for my wife and some her friends to have an afternoon tea at Lily's as part of her 50th birthday celebrations. They had a great time and enjoyed every minute of it. I'd thoroughly recommend Lily's and will be using again.

The staff are hard working and this cafe is always rammed. It's a nice place for lunch or coffee, but the menu can be a bit samey and I feel it's a bit overpriced. The owners work hard and it's very popular.

Great friendly service and lovely food. We were staying in a hotel on a "room only" basis so we had to organise a breakfast. So glad we chose Lily's.

Lovely homemade lunch, freshly battered fish, homemade quiche, nicely prepped ciabatta with good quality bacon. Lots of little things that made the meal feel like super value for money and taste delicious. Service is excellent and very friendly and the location near the cathedral is...More

Nice food, all seemed freshly prepared, I had homemade soup and it was good. I refrained from the desserts although they looked good. I thought the service was very good, friendly and attentive, but not intrusive.

Been here a few years ago with friends. Decided to treat my daughter so welcome here. Nice little restaurant, in a picturesque Street close to the Cathedral. Staff very polite, very efficient, not pushy at all. Food was tasty. Very pleasant place. Will go again.

Very nice cafe in a charming lane off Westgate. Had good coffee and a very nice and well presented BLT sandwich.

Having always walked by we thought we would stop for a light lunch. We both had leek and potato soup served with a choice of bread or baguette plus a nice cup of tea. It was yummy. There was a good selection on the menu...More
