Cathedral Café and Loyalty Card

Our Cathedral café is a relaxing, self-service eatery boasting views to the magnificent West Front of Wells Cathedral and over the tranquil moat of the Bishop’s Palace.

Join us for morning coffee or afternoon tea with a great selection of freshly-baked scones, pastries and cakes or perhaps at lunchtime for a warming bowl of homemade soup. Other light lunch options include panninis, quiches and salads.

For more hearty lunchtime dishes we are delighted to be able to make use of the excellent local produce Somerset has to offer and ingredients can regularly be found in our various lunchtime specials.

We also offer pre-concert suppers which is a great way to start off an evening out. We are fully licensed with wine and beer available alongside a selection of soft drinks.

Opening Times

From April to October our café is open:

10.00am-5.00pm Monday-Saturday

11.00am-4.30pm Sundays and Bank Holidays

Our café welcomes visitors all year but winter opening times may vary. Please note that the lift to our café is currently out of order (May 2014).
