Journey Planner

 At St Paul's Cathedral, the menus in both the restaurant and the café have been developed to reflect the best of British produce. This means sourcing local, seasonal ingredients, and cooking them simply and beautifully.

The Café at St Paul's


Open 9am - 5pm Monday to Saturday and 12 - 4pm Sunday.

Our café is a showcase for traditional British baking serving up such homemade delights as Richmond maids of honour, Wiltshire lardy cake, Chelsea buns and Victoria sandwich cake. We also serve delicious soups and sandwiches and have a daily changing menu of salads and savoury tarts.

Further choice is available from the Barrow in the Crypt where you can pick your own ploughman's lunch, choosing from a variety of British cheeses, cured meats, pickles and artisan breads; many of these ingredients coming from nearby Borough and Spitalfields Markets.

The Restaurantat St Paul's

Lunch 12pm - 3pm Monday to Sunday
Afternoon tea 3pm - 4.30pm Monday to Saturday

Our restaurant menu includes a fixed price lunch, again using the best seasonal ingredients, with 2 courses for £20 or 3 for £24. Each afternoon we celebrate traditional afternoon tea with delicate sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, cakes and a selection of teas or, for an extra indulgence, a glass of English sparkling wine.
