Michaelhouse Café, Hereford

Michaelhouse Café
A church which is home to an award-winning café serving dishes created from local produce
Its strange to find an award winning café in a church. Usually you will find home made scones bought in by parishioners with rhubarb Jam and cups of tea in mis-matching crockery. The menus are fabulous and its great to see such a community resource doing so well.

Profile Description

Michaelhouse Café is one of Bill’s Cafés founded and operated by food writer and restaurateur Bill Sewell. Bill has been involved in Michaelhouse since before it opened in 2002. The café is set within the remarkable re-development of St Michael’s church under the auspices of the Michaelhouse Centre.

The food is simple but fantastic. The daily changing menus are fresh and tasty and they serve great handmade food cooked on site every day; with the aim is to make simple things perfectly. The Michaelhouse Centre, situated in St Michael’s Church, opened in 2002 as a unique community resource in the heart of Cambridge.

It is a place of beauty and tranquility offering affordable meeting space for groups in an accessible venue. The centre comprises a modern and well-equipped café, meeting rooms for hire, display/exhibition space, performance space and the medieval Hervey de Stanton Chapel, set aside for meditation and prayer.

In the evenings and on Sundays we can accommodate up to 95 people for a sit-down meal, and up to 200 for more informal events.

Michaelhouse also hosts art exhibitions. So all in all there is lots going on here and its worth a visit we think.
