Beautiful setting and inspirational food!

The Refectory Café, set in our 13th-century monk’s dining hall is not to be missed, whether visiting the cathedral or doing some shopping in Chester. A cosy eatery in unique surroundings, it’s the perfect pit-stop for morning coffee, light lunch or a business meeting.

Join us this December for a Festive Lunch, Afternoon tea or Winter Warmer!

Each day, delicious sandwiches, cakes and pastries are made fresh in our kitchen. You can pop in and sample our lunchtime menu, treat yourself to our delicious cakes and take advantage of our free Wi-Fi!

Our cafe includes a 17th-century tapestry on the west wall, paintings representing the Earls of Chester and the beautiful Creation Window depicting the six days of creation.
