Located in the crypt of St Martin’s, this welcoming and hidden café has been a favourite of tourists and locals alike for 30 years.  Original brick-vaulted ceilings and historic tombstones lining the floor provide the backdrop to a varied selection of freshly prepared, value for money food throughout the day.

It is the perfect place if you’re looking for somewhere quiet to sit and work or have a small meeting. We are a COVID-secure site; for more information on our measures, see here.
