Cathedral Café and Catering

Scones Lunches, coffee and cream teas using local Somerset and Fairtrade produce

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. Our food is freshly prepared and baked by our team in the Cathedral kitchen each day – including our homemade bread! – using local Somerset and Fairtrade produce wherever possible. Fresh tap water is available free of charge each day.

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 toasties, quiches and salads.

All profits from the café go to supporting the work of the Cathedral.

Opening Times and Dogs


The café is open from 10am – 4pm and 11am-4pm on Sundays. We welcome visitors all year but winter opening times may vary.  Well behaved dogs are also welcome!
