“Great Suprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Like another reviewer had noted I had been on my way to the nearby National Trust Workhouse when I passed the Minister and had no idea that it was there decided that I would visit it on my way back (also backed up by a leaflet that I found in a display at the NT Workhouse). Not as pretty as a lot of ministers and cathedrals on the outside but very good once you get inside as the architecture combines five main styles including Norman & Early English. Free to enter, but they suggest or ask for a donation

“Interesting”

For the size of the town this really is an enormous building. Interesting from an architectural point of view. People on hand to answer questions.

“A haven of peace, tranquility and beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We never tire of visiting this magnificent cathedral in Nottinghamshire
It is one of the undiscovered gems of England
To enter its Norman doors and look around at the beautiful architecture is the most wonderous thing
The Green Man Chapel is unique and one of the wonders of English architecture
The staff are unfailing polite, knowledgeable and helpful

“Southwell Minster Refectory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

I visited here July 2014. It has recently had a major refurbishment. The inside and outside seating areas are lovely. The staff were friendly and efficient . The chef is new and the food was of a very high quality , with a good choice to suit all tastes. I recommend this venue.
