Whether it’s breakfast,lunch or just tea and cake..... Cloisters are consistently excellent. We stopped on Saturday for breakfast and left very happy and very full. Quality of food and also service from staff are both great. Dietary requirements easily catered for without a fuss.

This lovely cafe has a really cosy atmosphere. The drinks and cakes were excellent if a little expensive. Staff were friendly and efficient. Worth the slightly higher prices for the nice ambience.
