This Christmas why not sample the festive menu in our relaxing and contemporary Cathedral café and enjoy the view over the West Front of the Cathedral and the tranquil moat of the Bishop’s Palace. Join us for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.

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.

We offer a wide range of dishes, soups and cakes and plenty of seasonal goodies as we approach Christmas.  We are a fully licensed restaurant so why not treat yourself to a warming glass of mulled wine!

Also this season, let us take the stress out of your home entertaining. Ask about our home deliveries and take away dishes – in particular our famous and delicious quiches!
