The stunning Refectory offers a café experience like no other. Situated within the grounds of the 900 year old Norwich Cathedral the Refectory combines old and new architecture to offer a beautiful and contemporary setting to enjoy delicious homemade food or stop off for a refreshing drink.
Opened in 2004, the award-winning Refectory was designed by Sir Michael Hopkins and is built on the site of the original medieval dining hall. Its high ceiling and glass exterior offer a light and spacious setting with all the modern facilities of free Wi-Fi and lift access for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
The Refectory’s menu changes monthly and offers a choice of light lunches, sandwiches and savouries, and the homemade cakes are not to be missed! Children’s meals are also provided and an extensive hot and cold drinks menu is available. All food is freshly prepared on-site using local and seasonal produce and if you really need another reason to visit, all profits support the maintenance of the beautiful Cathedral.
The Refectory is open seven days a week:
Monday to Saturday 10.00am – 5.00pm
Sunday 11.00am – 5.00pm
The full lunch menu is served 12.00pm – 2.30pm.
