It's great that there is a nice team room available in the Refectory of Salisbury cathedral to cover that inevitable thirst for a cuppa whilst taking in the history here. The day we visited was very busy with the older generation jostling for the specialty snacks and sandwiches. We restricted ourselves to a large iced latte and huge cups of... More

As church cafes go this one is avarage. The tea passable. The views are just amazing if you remember to look up. The staff give the impression of just going through the motions, they're not that bothered if you're happy with the service or not. I wouldn't use the cafe again if I returned.

Good food, good prices, plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, amazing view to the inner yard. Most of the food and all the cakes are handmade.

We may just have been unlucky - but.... My pre-prepared egg mayannaise sandwich had no mayo - although staff were willing to get some when I went and asked. It did take an inordinate time for it to come out to me. My husband could not eat his soup (so bland and tasteless) and left most of his sandwich. When... More

The refectory is bright and spacious built besides the church and when inside you will see the tallest spire of UK, just beautiful. The food and price is just average. A good place to rest and relax after a good tour of the church.

This is a well stocked refectory with plenty of choice and not too expensive. Adequate seating and good service. Well worth going there.

We had lunch here today. I have to say that I was extremely impressed and sad that I have found this little gem, finally, after living here for 11 years! We had two homemade sausage rolls and I have to say that they were the tastiest sausage rolls that I have ever had. I did think however that the drinks... More

You know how museum restaurants can be expensive and tasteless? Well you don't have to worry about this little gem. We had wonderful soup (carrot and coriander) with crusty bread. It was a very nice lunch with very reasonable prices. Just try it.
