We were treat to lunch by The Canon today in The Welsford. We chose soup of the day which was butternut squash&sweet potato. This was served in a delightful small cast iron pot with a lid.All sat on a wooden board. It came with a chunk of lovely bread and was enjoyed by us 3 adults and our teenager.Next we had scouse. this too was served as the soup was and was truly scrumptious. Full of meat and tasty veg.We even managed a slice of toffee cake to finish...I need that recipe! It was "heavenly" The service was very speedy and attentive.Though the portions weren't overly huge they were very fairly priced.I(we) would return again to eat here.

I was confused by this place - it has the barebones appearance of a cafeteria yet tries to present quite homely food (scouse, fish and chips) in a trendy way which actually gets in the way of eating it. Fish and chips was fime, but the blind scouse (scouse sans meat) had zero protein and actually not a lot of scouse to go with a huge hunk of bread. THe setting is great though, especially when the terrace is open.

This small cathedral restaurant is first class. (It must be only time small is used in this enormous building!) We've been twice now - once for a private dinner and the second time when it was open to the public.

The food was really good, all cooked in the kitchen at the far end. The fish pie from the à la carte was packed with prawns, mussels, salmon and white fish, in a lovely sauce, with mash and dill on top. The chips with the fish and chips were delicious, as was the home made tartare sauce.

The coffee was top class, as was the service. Price was good too!

My only complaint would be it can be draughty in that huge building, but manager told us they were aware of that, and the door to the outside terrace was going to replaced.

Loved it! I expect we'll be there again in the future.

I have been a regular visitor to the Anglican cathedral for more years than I care to mention and always looked forward to eating in the refectory. Before this company took over the catering at the cathedral I had never had a poor meal. Quiches, home made pies, and divine puddings and cakes - all at reasonable prices and excellent quality.
I have eaten here three times now and apart from the very first visit the food has failed to live up to expectation. The salads provided looked very good but the 'beef and ale ' pie did not resemble its name. It had some meat, but was laced so heavily with tomato and vegetables the beef and the ale were lost. My grand daughter ordered Lincoln sausages with 'onion gravy'. No onions and a large jug of gravy. They did accommodate her request for an alternative to the 'mash' which was good.
After what used to be available, this 'restaurant' needs to go back to basics and lose the trendy appearance. Eating a pie from a small bowl set on a slate is not the easiest way to enjoy your food when it's a struggle to get it out of the bowl in the first place... a plate would have been good.
The food is not as good value for money and needs to be much better for the cost. The staff are very friendly and obliging which is a plus but it doesn't out weigh the lack of quality of the food.
