Abbey Café

The Abbey Cafe is delighted to announce it is re-opening with a takeaway only service from next Thursday 2nd July 9.30am to 3.30pm. 

The entrance to the Café will be from the Cloister Gardens at the back of the Abbey building and we’ve put in place COVID secure measures for everyone’s safety. 

It will then be open Monday to Saturday 9.30 am to 3.30 pm

Emma and her team will be serving a take-out menu of barista coffees, a selection of teas, a fine choice of sandwiches and delicious cakes and cookies. They look forward to welcoming you all back!

If you’re nearby just drop in and see us. OR you can contact us and order in advance; we can have your order ready for you when you arrive.  OR, if you are visiting with a group from afar why not let us know and we can arrange a takeaway light lunch or an afternoon tea. 


You will love our cakes, sandwiches, soups and our fresh Fairtrade coffee and you will find our bacon rolls irresistible. We have a 5 Star rating from the Food Standards Agency , we have been awarded Fairtrade Status from the Fairtrade Foundation and we have worked really hard to get our “Breast Feeding Friendly” status from the NCT & the NHS. 

Our freshly ground coffee is provided by Kingdom Coffee

“Let all guests that come be received like Christ.”

So begins Chapter 53 of the 6th century Rule of Benedict, (you probably knew that!). Malmesbury Abbey began life as a Benedictine monastery in the 7th century. Things have changed a little since then, but hospitality to all remains an important and natural part of Abbey life.
