Very good

Nice place for lunch or to grab a quick cake and a coffee, it's normally very busy so sometimes it's hard to get a seat. A little overpriced too.

I rarely rate places as five stars, however the old theatre deli more than justifies it ... always a warm welcome from the charming staff, a plethora of sweet and savouries comestibles to suit any time of the day, and simply a lovely spot to relax, work or entertain ... one couldn't recommend it highly enough ... special mentions must...

Very noisy because little in the way of soft furnishings to absorb sound. As someone with somewhat poor hearing (but not bad enough to merit a hearing aid) , I had to leave to escape the clatter and din.

Excellent coffee and lovely to be able to sit outside in the sunshine. Friends tell us that the sandwiches were delicious. Nice touch to have leaf tea - but not sure that the water was sufficiently boiling to infuse the leaves in in my pot! Friendly staff, and highly recommend.

We called in on several mornings after rehearsal at the Minster. We were made very welcome and there was a good variety of food and drink on offer.

We had a drink and a cake here on Sunday afternoon. It was very pleasant sitting out watching people pass by. The smoothie was very tasty and the cake lovely

Sumptuous cakes! On a nice day it is great to sit outside. They do provide blankets when it is chilly. Tea comes in traditional tea pots with China cups. Coffee is gorgeous too.
