I came here for morning coffee and asked for a decaff latte. I was told that the only decaff option was basically a spoonful of decaff coffee in a cup of hot water, for which they proposed to charge me £2.30. Why?

A pleasant place to sit and have a cup of tea after a visit to the Cathedral. Staff are young and polite, the cafe clean and comfortable. It has a small outside seating area which is a sun trap . Not recommended for children.

Impressed by food. Clearly home made cottage pie which was very tasty. Also sandwiches soups and drinks. Above average and not expensive for a cathedral cafe. Internet access.

A good location and excellent selection of food that is very good value. It was very over heated when I was there and extremely busy. Find a table before you order at the counter to avoid disappointment.

Popped in for a quick sandwich and coffee. Lovely setting and ambience. Very busy but staff friendly. Little pricey but you pay for the setting near the Cathedral.

Cafe in the Cloisters of the Cathedral. Service a little bit slow but good worth waiting for. Vegetarians catered for. Friendly staff. Busy at weekends

I went here with a friend for lunch amids Christmas shoppers. The cafes nearer the centre were full so we tried this one. We had a very good panini and drinks. Prices were fair, food was good quality. Friendly staff.

Cloisters Cafe prides itself on fair trade suppliers and freshly cooked food, featuring dishes such as smoked haddock with a gruyere and tomato gratin, supreme of chicken in a mushroom and tarragon sauce and roasted sweet potato with a bean ragu. Old favourites also appear on the menu along with baked potatoes and a range of hot and cold sandwiches. There is a roast on Sundays when bookings can be made in advance. Cloisters also has a beautiful walled garden and the stunning Cathedral spire can be seen through its glazed roof. Next to our cafe is the Cloisters Shop, offering a range of unique and gorgeous gifts and accessories, souvenirs and religious items. A perfect way to round off a visit to the Cathedral, or just to find that special present.
