Have a very nice lunch here. Menu had a good selection of sandwiches, cakes, jacket potatoes and specials. Food was served promptly and was very nice. Would happily revisit.

The Butterpats were extremely tasty. A... More

We realised we had not had a cream tea, so decided on our last day to have this special treat. We’re going to Crumbs and Creams unfortunately they had run out of scones so they directed us to The Buttery At The Crypt. The cream tea was okay, placing our order and service was really slow even though not that... More

Has been up dated since our last visit, and not before time. New menus and décor and waiters/waitresses who are more professional than the previously employed students. Ideal for a shoppers lunch, morning coffee or afternoon tea.

Food was ok and not bad portion size, it was really quick and efficient. It was all a bit basic, but ok for a stop off. Waitress was polite, smiley and friendly. Tables were a bit sticky, but were wiped promptly when we asked. I guess it was functional, just not outstanding. Loads of people were having cream tea which... More

Stopped off here for a late breakfast while shopping in Chichester and was very disappointed. There is a notice asking you to find a table and then a waiter / waitress will come and take your order. We sat down and were seen by the gentleman and lady behind the counter, but it was nearly 10 minutes before someone came... More

Great find for afternoon tea and cakes...historical setting after walking round the cathedral and grounds next door, loved the atmosphere and sitting beneath the vaulted ceiling and stone pillars. Great cakes and a nice pot of tea to round off our trip to Chichester town centre. Menu has great choices and will call here for lunch sometime soon...well recommended...

Luckily I have been visiting this café on and off since before Trip Advisor realky existed so I had already formed my own view of it. I love the setting and the food has always been very nice - on this visit I had a cream tea and my husband had a sausage sandwich and both were delicious. I really... More
