An excellent wine list and a good, freshly sourced menu make this a superb choice for a weekend nibble. Time it right, and you can get the train from Cambridge (or Ely). The restaurant is a 20 second dash from Littleport's tiny railway station, and not have to worry about driving and booze. A pity it only opens at weekends.

The food was as good as we hoped but even better than expected having read the reviews. Our service was friendly and knowledgeable. I note the possible delays n service from other reviewers but that was not our experience although there were not so many customers when we went. We are losing the art of conversation and we seem to... More

Perhaps the fault was ours for not realising before booking that diners are expected to have the full four courses at this restaurant. For about £41 it's good value. However, my husband and I are not big eaters and required only a couple of drinks and a main course. When we asked if we were able to have only one... More

Fabulous food - the chef is very, very good and the food is fine dining. The only draw back is that it is a bit out of the way and you cannot just drop in for a meal. Booking ahead is essential

It doesn't even look like a Restaurant, more like a private house. Sitaued between the railway and the river it's not a great location but the food and service make up for that. Excellent freshly prepared, interesting meals. This is fine Dining at its best. You have to prebook and the place is small but has a lovely atmosphere. Well... More

We visited The Fen House on Saturday 25/04/15, what a find. The food, setting and staff excellent. Food served up very well on, very professionally done, compliments to the chef. I am sure we will return soon. What good value for money.

I was invited to a meal with friends. This is a very small intimate family run establishment that serves gourmet food. I can't remember the last time I've eaten such good food and had such attentive service. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful food, large portions, reasonable value, very quiet. We dined there on a Saturday evening and there were only another couple and a group of 3 there. At £40 per head for 3 courses and only open Friday and Saturday evenings, not sure how they make any money, but this is a real find in an area where there are... More
