Visited today after a carol concert in Gloucester cathedral. Popped in for a quick lunch which was all fresh good quality home cooking. It took a while for our food to come but the manager explained to us there had been a problem with our order and was very apologetic, and gave us some free drinks. We didn't think that... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea in a beautiful environment. The staff is absolutely wonderful. The Tailor's Tea with a Beatrix Potter theme is highly recommended!

Food was excellent and the staff were great. Ordered a dessert to share and were each given our own portion of crumble and custard - "so we would each have the same amount". I would have struggled to eat one by myself. Pleasure to be served by such lovely people.

Nice cafe, great staff, lovely location, quality food but just not enough and extremely overpriced. The "mega breakfast" consists of one sausage, a small cup of beans, tomatoes, one bacon, one egg and mushrooms. It cost 10.95!!! Too much for too little

Picked this cafe from the Trip Advisor review site and we were not disappointed. It is situated in a quite alley very close to the cathedral. We we were there for a light lunch but the main meals that were being served to other guests looked amazing. The food is cooked/made to order so there was a wait for it... More
