“Small but good”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Food was reasonably priced and tasty. It is however very small with tables outside so if you are visiting on a wet day get in early as it gets very crowded.

“Overpriced & poor quality”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Had a cup of tea as part of the tour of the cathedreal & were going to eat lunch until we saw the prices. £2.50 for a small sausage roll that looked overcooked & burnt. Ploughmans was £4.75 & filled potatoes a similar price. There are plenty of bakeries & food outlets close to the cathedral & the management appear to have forgotten this when devising menus & setting prices. Save money & go somewhere down the high street instead.

“Reasonably priced wholesome food”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

The Refectory Cafe served delicious wholesome food at very reasonable prices. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the whole atmosphere of the places is something that you rarely find in similar establishments.

On my next visit to Ely I will definately give it another visit - it would be a crime not to!
