The Cathedral Cafe is one of Winchester’s hidden gems. Open daily 9.30am-5.00pm.

You can find the newly refurbished Cathedral Cafe sheltered behind an ancient flint wall opposite the Cathedral. Its award-winning contemporary design, large terrace with Cathedral views and pretty walled garden make it a great place to meet friends for a coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.

The cafe reopened in 2023 after a short refurbishment and is complete with soft banquette-style seating, as well as new tables and chairs inside and in the courtyard, and new menus to showcase fresh, local ingredients prepared by a talented new chef. There will still be a familiar feeling, as the same friendly front of house staff are ready to welcome you back.
