Description: This restaurant is attached to the Salisbury Cathedral, but is open to anyone. You do not have to tour the cathedral to enter the restaurant. An overlooked gem for people visiting Salisburyn but not making a stop at the cathedral.

Small little cafe in the heart of the cathedral - good spot to have a quick snack. Pastries and tea or coffee are very good, sandwichs (toasties) are average but substantial. Staff friendly and helpful.

I stopped here for a lunchtime snack. They had lots on offer,a selection of hot food plus cold food such as sandwiches, frittatas, roasted tomatoes, salads etc. There was also a good selection of pastries such as croissants, brownies, muffins and scones with clotted cream and jam. They do a good range of coffees and teas, cold drinks etc. I... More

Just dropped in by chance but discovered the very best Eccles cakes. It was peaceful and the staff are great. Lovely and clean.

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.
