Cathedral Café and Catering
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.
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.

New in the Cathedral Café are a series of healthy, homemade, hearty soups. These fantastic lunch meals are only £5.75 and are available Monday to Saturday each week.
The current seasonal offers are:

Don’t forget we also offer a Vegetarian Soup each day which is also gluten free.
Afternoon teas will be on offer in our atmospheric cloisters as part of a new ‘pop up café’ experience. The pop up café will be available Wednesday – Sundays from 1.30-4.30pm from Wednesday 28 March (although it won’t be running between Monday 9 April to Tuesday 1 May). No need to book!
