Piazza Services


The Piazza has a fast and friendly self-service counter and you can eat in or take away so it’s ideal for a leisurely breakfast or lunch, a relaxing afternoon coffee and cake or a “grab and run” tight schedule.

With prior notice, we can cope with larger groups, bus tour groups or special parties.

Our “hub” room is a quiet area for business meetings or larger lunch groups.

We can prepare takeaway buffets for your meeting or event – and in some circumstances we can deliver to local businesses, offices and events.

Private parties


The Piazza is available up to 8:30 AM and after 6 PM for private parties and events.
We can provide food and/or drinks or let you have the room only.

A range of breakfast items or evening buffets are available to suit your needs.

Please call or email the manager for details.

High-speed Wi-Fi is available free throughout the premises.
Ask at the counter for the password.

We have full allergy advice available for all the items we sell.
Ask at the counter for more details.

Car and Cycle Parking


The cathedral has its own car park (which is pay and display- 5 pounds per day) subject to space being available. Unfortunately the car park may be closed to visitors when there is a special event but there is additional car parking available opposite to the Cathedral car park on the university campus.

There is also meter parking available on Hope Street and Mount Pleasant.

There is a cycle park outside the Piazza.

High chairs and baby changing

Children are very welcome at the Piazza and we have high chair and baby changing facilities – baby changing is in the ‘disabled’ toilet and is therefore available for baby changers of both sexes.
