The Refectory - a place to meet and dine

The sister building of the Hostry, the Refectory represented the first phase in a project to equip the Cathedral for the 21st century.
Designed by Sir Michael Hopkins and completed in 2004, the Refectory has won numerous awards. With its use of wood and glass set within ancient masonry, the building is startlingly modern but also harmonious within its surroundings.
A rather unique café experience by day (with phenomenally good cake), the Refectory is also a space that plays host to special events.
