Nestling into the shadows of the ‘Ship of the Fens’ (Ely Cathedral), this is generally regarded as the place to eat just north of Cambridge & booking is often essential to get a taste of the
varied British menu that's built around the fresh produce (meat, game, fish & vegetables) available in the Fens. It’s a great place for classics like celery & stilton soup, steak &
kidney pie, beef braised in port & Guinness, as well as homely dishes like homecooked ham with baked potato & homemade piccalilli, & puds like apple & blackberry crumble. 'Splendid'
service. Good, too, for daytime lunches, when the Old Fire Engine doubles as an art gallery.
