Where to eat




Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral is a modern tearoom with a twist on the traditional.

Brought to you by broadcaster & tea fanatic Yvette Fielding and the team behind award-winning Northern Quarter eatery, Teacup Kitchen, Proper Tea champions fine loose leaf teas and acts as a flagship store for the soon-to-be launched Proper Tea Company.

Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral offers a contemporary take on the traditional British tearoom, serving an impressive selection of loose leaf teas alongside fresh homemade meals and delicious hand crafted cakes. The menu boasts showstopping afternoon teas, cream teas and cakes alongside hearty stews, soups and sandwiches.

Proper Tea at Manchester Cathedral focus on quality, local produce, working with artisan producers and farms from across the North West; fresh herbs and honey grown in the Cathedral grounds are even used in the kitchen. Neighbouring wine heavyweights HangingDitch offer a wonderful wine list to accompany your meal or add sparkle to a special occasion. Guests are greeted with warm and friendly service in a contemporary yet cosy environment.

Afternoon Tea is served from midday each day, comprised of three tiers stacked high with homemade finger sandwiches, savouries, miniature cakes, scones and fruit tarts and served with pot of loose leaf tea or glass of bubbly. The Afternoon Tea selection changes seasonally. Current favourites include a crisp and tangy cheddar & smoked pepper quiche, and a zingy passion fruit-meringue tart.
