Great food with a warm welcome. This was our first time at the old fire engine house and will not be our last. A Saturday lunch time treat and meet with the father inlaw and his wife. Quirky surroundings and with the art work for sale gave a lovely atmosphere at first followed by the excellent service and superb quality food.

We enjoyed lunch and had excellent service. The food was superb and we were asked if we wanted extra for the sea bass and pork dishes. Everything was just right, not too crowded, with a nicely spaced room.they had two rooms and a pre dinner drink bar. It was not cheap but worth the money we payed

We've been here twice in the last month with mother in a wheelchair. Helpful staff and delicious food. My top choice for a special family lunch in Ely. Lovely for a couple too, as the restaurant is also an atmospheric art gallery.

A gem of a restaurant. Visited a few times, prebook well in advance. An elegant set of rooms, with an eclectic mix of tables and chairs. Warm and welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff. Food is delicious and you can have second helpings! Pre dinner drinks served in quirky little 'bar' . Coffee in lounge or in summer, in the amazing garden. A real treasure , this one..
