We enjoyed a fine light meal here after a visit to Ely Cathedral. The menu offers a wide choice of home cooked fresh food, served by friendly waiting staff in a delightful setting in the cathedral grounds. Lots of delicious cakes and treats too!

Outstanding food place (a bit more than a tearoom but not a restaurant) part of Ely Cathedral. Great service, great food - a definite place for lunch/snack.

Try the fruitscones, I still remember the taste of the cream. My family was also happy with the jacket potatoes. It was crowded but we were lucky to find a table. When we left, we could make an other party happy. I understand they have a queue very often. I don't do queues. I rather come back some other time.

We went here just before Christmas and had a very nice Christmas meal, the service was excellent and the food was very good too and you can pop in for a coffee and a cake with friends and have a chat in the comfortable surroundings, winter and sit outside in the summer and take in the view

Lovely building in the grounds of the cathedral. It was busy but we were given a table after 5 mins wait and there were lots of staff milling around. It took ages for anyone to take our order but when they did we ordered 'orange juice with bits, hot chocolate and french fries' to warm us up. The juice was... More
