We had a baguette and baked potato. The service was pleasant and the food was nice and not too expensive. The cafe is conveniently located within the cathedral.

I live in Durham but rarely visit the Undercroft restaurant in Durham Cathedral. As it's at the heart of the tourist area in Durham, the Undercroft gets incredibly busy. The restaurant itself is quite small with tables tightly packed, making it difficult to move between...More
