The Bishop’s Table Café

Sunday roasts, all-day-breakfasts and tasty lunches;  making the most of delicious, locally sourced food …..

Located in the heart of the visitor area at The Bishop’s Palace and Gardens lies the award-winning Bishop’s Table, our ever-popular café with a view like no other over the croquet lawn.

With free access to everyone, just cross the drawbridge and you’ll see the award-winning building nestled under the trees overlooking the croquet lawn and Palace buildings.

The Bishop’s Table was named after Bishop Ken’s tradition of inviting twelve poor men and women of Wells to share a meal at his table when in residence at The Palace. Bishop Ken was Bishop here from 1685-1691.

Serving delicious, locally sourced homemade food and some of the best coffee and cake you’ll find in Wells, it’s now the perfect place to meet friends for breakfast, lunch, a delicious take-away or our NEW Sunday lunches!
