Introducing Pilgrims’ Kitchen...

A new restaurant, Pilgrims’ Kitchen, is receiving excellent reviews from its customers at St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Accessed via the elegant Cloisters at the magnificent Cathedral in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, Pilgrims’ Kitchen offers all visitors a warm welcome and a great new place to eat and meet.

The former Refectory has been transformed over the winter months into an inviting eating space with rustic furniture, quirky chapel chairs, pots of fresh herbs and heritage colours. Comfy sofas offer a more relaxed area for a cup of coffee, or the chance to catch up with friends of all ages. Young friends are catered for with highchairs and toys. Wifi is now available. Pilgrims’ Kitchen offers Suffolk-based Paddy and Scott’s coffee as well as Fairtrade tea, James White Apple juice and a choice of Fairtrade wine or the iconic Greene King St Edmund’s ale.

‘Home cooked, locally sourced produce still tops the menu,’ comments Jane Harrison, Enterprises Manager at the Cathedral, with responsibility for Pilgrims’ Kitchen and the Cathedral Shop. ‘We are pleased to be using locally sourced ingredients such as sauces from Stokes of Woodbridge, jams and chutneys from Elveden Estates and bread from Gastono-me.’

Cakes baked on the premises as well as the famous cheese scones will be back on the menu.

If you’re on the move, Pilgrims’ Kitchen is offering an enhanced takeaway service – whether it’s a quick coffee, a Danish pastry or your sandwich choice wrapped up in a neat box.

Pilgrims’ Kitchen is open Monday to Saturday 8.30 am to 5.30 pm.
