Met here with friends. Had a wonderful, tasty lunch of homemade soup with crusty fresh bread. An enjoyable lunch in the quiet, peaceful gardens with a stunning view. Will definitely visit again.

Really nice cafe with really good prices. Only stopped for a tea and less than £2 for a cup, who can complain. It’s a shame it was raining as you can sit outside on a nice day, over looking the Cathedral garden. Would visit again...More

Even on a winter's day, sit outside for coffee - the cafe catches the sun and the view of the cathedral is fabulous. Coffee's good too, and a choice of cake or biscuit. Good service.
