A busy place but with a good selection of hot meals, snacks and of course scones and cakes. Good value and pleasant staff. Good place to view parts of the cathedral and relax

The lunches are always delicious with freshly made specials every day, and lovely views over the West Front of the Cathedral on one side, or the Bishop's Palace on the other. Vegetarians are very well catered for.

We came for a light lunch here after visiting the lovely Cathedral and Bishop's Palace gardens. The restaurant was very light and airy and clean with pleasant views on at least one side. The menu was varied. We both had a ham and egg quiche with salad and new potatoes. The portion was very generous and we felt nicely replete... More

Visited for coffee and lunch last Saturday. Up a flight of stairs next to cathedral. We received a friendly welcome from staff and the restaurant was very clean. I had smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches with a scone. Lovely lunch. Usual full choice of coffees and soft drinks. Good quality food.
