Always the perfect place to bring guests. Sitting in the quaint (though noisy) interior room full of charactor, or outside looking over the most beautiful buildings in the world (may be a bit biased here!). The food is always good, though options are limited.

Great ambiance. The 900-year old vaulted ceiling alone is worth a visit, but they also have some fantastic coffee, including excellent espresso, and tasty treats.

We drove into the city centre and parked in Gloucester Green (?). It was expensive though at £14 for 6 hours but it was very convenient for the centre.
