Sit in the peaceful garden watch the birds come down to see what is going on. Nice lawned area for children to move around. Good inside area if weather not so good

Warm, comfortable and they served a very good mocha, no time to eat lunch that day but the food looked lovely.

A very good place for lunch/drinks when visiting the cathedral. Limited number of places, so can be difficult to get a table. Great jacket potatoes and coffee, excellent service, reasonable prices.
