Café in the Crypt

Enjoy a light lunch, treat yourself to a slice of cake or warm up with a cup of tea in our Café located in our 13th Century Crypt. The Café is run by volunteers and we aim to follow the Cathedral’s Benedictine foundations by offering a warm and genuine welcome to all visitors.

Local Produce

We aim to use Kentish suppliers and producers where possible. We have a range of homemade cakes, simple sandwiches and local fruit juices. We also have a small range of products for visitors with gluten and dairy allergies.

All proceeds go to keeping this stunning Cathedral open for another 1400 years.

Location

The Café in the Crypt is located downstairs in Rochester Cathedral.

Opening Times

The Café in the Crypt is open Monday – Saturday from 11am to 3pm. 

(For any changes to this – please check our closure notices.)

Volunteer at Rochester Cathedral

The Café is run by volunteers and we are currently looking for new volunteers to help us further develop our current offer. You do not need to have any experience handling cash or working in a Café. We will provide all training for volunteers so just ask for enthusiasm. Please do get in touch if you are interested in volunteering with us. Tel: 01634 810077 or email volunteermanager@rochestercathedral.org
