The Scullery is at its best when the sun is shining and it's possible to sit at an outside table, watching life on busy Waterloo Street. But if it's windy or cold you are still going to get a warm welcome and good food inside....It's a gem of a place, just round from the tourist information office and close to the Guildhall. They do a range of good coffees and other hot and cold drinks, baked goods, and a limited, but filling, lunch menu with a different soup each day. It's my first stop on arrival in the city.More

Visited with family for tea/coffee. Had scones with jam and cream liked the individual jam pots. The scones were very bland hard to find the cranberrys may as well have been a plain scone.

We stopped in here straight out of a taxi from the airport. A great choice of late breakfast was both delicious and great value with free coffee refill. Service was excellent and the cafe is comfortable and nicely decorated, particularly the Undertones gig poster collage.

Welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent quality food just a stones throw from the Guildhall. The food is excellent, lots of variety and great value. I had one of the nicest club sandwiches I’ve ever had. A perfect location for a filling lunch. Would thoroughly...recommend.More

Super cafe with great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Hygiene in this pandemic era was great with all tables and chairs thoroughly disinfected between customers. The food was really good and the coffee truly excellent. Highly recommended.
