Cloisters Cafe

Cloisters Cafe
Cloisters Interior

The café is situated within the centre of the cathedral and boasts a beautiful private garden, allowing customers to enjoy a magnificent view of the cathedral. For more inclement days, there is also a stunning view of the Cathedral spire from inside through our glazed roof.

Delicious homemade food is offered daily ranging from breakfast to afternoon tea to light snacks and indulgent lunches. Old favourites appear alongside daily specials, as well as baked potatoes, salads and a range of hot and cold sandwiches. Cloisters prides itself on freshly cooked food using ingredients from fair trade and local suppliers. Traditional roast dinners are served every Sunday for which advance booking is available (see below).

Cloisters Café is open all year round with free Wi-Fi available and all profits go to the Cathedral.

Due to its versatile space, the café can also hold an evening reception for up to 130 people.
