Booking A Table

The Bishop's Cave strongly advises booking if you want to guarantee a table. Especially for Thursday-Saturday after 19:00. You don't have to book as tables are available for walk-ins but this small place and it fills up very quickly. You can always call the bar before you come and we can let you know if there is space. Bookings can be made on the website or by phone. ​

Table Bookings 

Bookings are made for one or two sittings on 12 out of 16 tables in the cave. ​How many people can i book for and how long can I stay?
The largest table can fit 8-10 people, so our bookings are restricted to 8. If you wish to book for more than 8 people you'll need to call or email us and see if we can accommodate you. If you have booked a table for after 6PM, as a general rule we do not book any more tables after you unless you have specifically mentioned that you will be leaving at a certain time. If you have booked a table before 6PM we will try to give you as long as possible on that table. ​

A perfect gift would be our popular gift vouchers. These are in various denominations and only available in store.
