Refectory Café

Relax and unwind in the tranquil and historic setting of the Refectory Café. Whether you’re looking for a quick morning coffee, afternoon tea with friends, or a leisurely lunch with a glass of wine, you’ll find plenty of choice on our mouth-watering menu.

Choose from our tempting selection of generously filled paninis, sandwiches and jacket potatoes, and a wide range of hot and cold drinks, including wines and beers. Our wonderful home-made scones, cakes and tray bakes are freshly baked every day, and we have some healthy and fun options for children too. We also offer our famous Afternoon Tea, from 1.45pm any day, but you must book in advance.

We source our products from local suppliers, and use Fair Trade ingredients whenever possible. All our food is prepared on the premises with a huge amount of care. We think you'll be able to taste the difference…

There is lots of space in our light and airy café, and on sunny summer days you can enjoy a table outside in our lovely courtyard.

And if you don’t have time to sit down, we offer takeaway too!
