Wells Cathedral Café

Wells Cathedral Café is open 10am-4pm daily.

Come and try our new dish of the day menu – delicious hot meals for each day of the week.

The Cathedral Café boasts views of the magnificent West Front of Wells Cathedral and over the tranquil moat of the Bishop’s Palace. The café is located on the first floor and is reached by a set of stairs or, for those in a wheelchair or with pushchairs, by lift.

Our food is freshly prepared and baked by our team in the Cathedral kitchen each day, using local Somerset and Fairtrade produce wherever possible. Enjoy a range of morning pastries, warm cheese scones, and light lunch choices, then finish off some tasty homemade cakes and cream teas! Fresh tap water is available free of charge every day.
