“disappointing”

Chester Cathedral Refectory Cafe
Ranked #143 of 576 Restaurants in Chester
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 17, 2014

called in for a lunchtime snack following a good lunch on a previous visit. Ordered Welsh Rarebit at a considerable cost of £5.95. What was served was two pieces of toasted bread with a tiny salad and small pieces of 'crispy bacon'. The local chutney was less than a spoonful. The cheese topping appeared greasy and pale, with the edge of the toast being burnt. Very unappetising and returned without trying. Expensive and poor quality considering that I have recently eaten in a main course in a French brasserie opposite the Tower of London for only £9.95. I asked that the cost of the meal went towards the upkeep of the cathedral.

It was beautiful in here. The stained glass windows are very attractive. We had a brownie, biscuits and tea and all was 5*. Not terribly expensive either considering the unusual surroundings.

Lovely atmosphere to sit and eat lunch in. Unfortunately we made a bad choice from the menu. Sausage and onion baguette. Hardly any sausage with lashings and lashings of onions, good if you like onions! Pot of tea at £2.50 is excessive and didn't go far.
