Prior’s Kitchen

Prior’s Kitchen

The Prior’s Kitchen is situated opposite the main entrance to the Cathedral in the vaulted undercroft of the medieval Fratry, which was originally the monks’ dining hall.

Join us for morning coffee, with a selection of delicious home made scones and cakes, or perhaps at lunchtime for home made soup, sandwiches, quiche, salads, jacket potatoes, and daily specials. We use locally sourced and Fair Trade products wherever possible.

The Prior’s Kitchen is open Monday – Saturday from 9.45am to 3.30pm.

The restaurant is also available for private hire for your special function – please see the section on venue hire for details.

We look forward to welcoming you very soon!
