Description: Cloisters Cafe prides itself on fair trade suppliers and freshly cooked food, featuring dishes such as smoked haddock with a gruyere and tomato gratin, supreme of chicken in a mushroom and tarragon sauce and roasted sweet potato with a bean ragu. Old favourites also appear on the menu along with baked potatoes and a range of hot and cold sandwiches. There is a roast on Sundays when bookings can be made in advance. Cloisters also has a beautiful walled garden and the stunning Cathedral spire can be seen through its glazed roof. Next to our cafe is the Cloisters Shop, offering a range of unique and gorgeous gifts and accessories, souvenirs and religious items. A perfect way to round off a visit to the Cathedral, or just to find that special present.

The Cloisters cafe serves good reasonably priced food in a peaceful location. Dogs are welcome in the cloisters.

Very nice setting for a meal in the garden at the back of the Cathedral.. Good salad bar and nice hot food served like a canteen with trays and paying before you eat.. A little pricey but worth it.

It might have got a 5 if it was not a modern carbuncle set amidst such gorgeous and elegant episcopal surroundings. We visited on a Sunday, and there was a queue, presumably of churchgoers, ready to tuck in to a carvery lunch. Pork and turkey were moist and succulent, and there was no shortage of spuds and veg to be heaped on to the plate, all for £8.95. Apple and berry crumble was available for afters! Coffee was only average though. Nice walled garden to sit out in. It is probably packed full in summer-time.

Visited for lunch.
Excellent meal prepared from fresh ingredients and cooked in a real kitchen (easily seen) unlike the typical and hidden microwave array in pubs and eateries.
Buffet servery.
Good range of soft drinks too.
Unique location and surroundings.

Lovely little cafe with a very relaxing outdoor seating area. Good selection of savoury and sweet. Would definitely visit again. It's a great place to unwind during a hectic shopping trip
