The Cloister Café

The Cloister Café is currently closed during daytime hours, Monday to Saturday.

This is because of the building works that are taking place immediately outside its walls.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

There are sometimes exceptions for special events.
These can be seen in the
day-by-day diary on this website.

The Café is still used for refreshments on Sundays after the Solemn Eucharist.

The building works are only a daytime event,
so the Cloister Café can still be hired for events in the evening.
Please see the section below for more information about this.
