Cellarium Cafe & Terrace is at the heart of Westminster Abbey, one of London's most iconic landmarks. It offers a unique experience, serving delicious food and drinks in the 14th Century cellars where the monks once stored their own wines, bread and cheeses. Set over two floors, under the ancient arches of the cellar and across a boldly contemporary terrace for spring and summer dining, the Cellarium Café & Terrace offers breakfasts, classic British lunches and Sunday roasts in a setting that is part of the medieval fabric of the Abbey. Entrance to the Cafe & Terrace is through the stunning, 13th Century Cloisters (it’s not hard to find, look for the signposts for the Dean’s Yard or just ask any of the friendly stewards around the Abbey). The Benedictine monks prided themselves on their hospitality. They had a decidedly un-monkish attitude when it came to good food and refreshments. It’s a tradition, together with using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, which we are happy to follow. The ancient cellars are cool and tranquil, perfect for afternoon tea or a hearty lunch. In spring and summer, you can have breakfast on the terrace, taking in the views of the Abbey. The Cellarium can also be hire privatise on evening. Perfect for Wedding ceremonies, corporate events, birthday and anniversaries. We can cater for up to 86 People seated | 120 standing within the Cellarium and up to 1500 in one of our secret garden.
