Expect to find 6 cask ales served, all kept very well, 3 of which are rotated on a monthly basis.The pub has had a recent refurbishment but has retained its traditional charm. It has also started offering good quality, freshly prepared food at lunch times from Monday to Saturday and in the evening from Monday to Friday. If you are looking for a comfortable, traditional and friendly pub that serves good beer and good quality food then visit the Prince Albert. « less

Offered a taste of several bitters and a delicious mild before making our choice. Lunch of cauliflower soup and garlic mushrooms on toast, followed by beef stew and dumplings and gammon and duck egg. Landlord very chatty and welcoming. Would have liked to stay longer had time allowed! The food was very tasty, could do with a snooze now!!

We haven't been to the Albert since it changed hands, it's still an old fashioned pub where you can talk, and the beer was good. The food, service, attitude was terrible and we didn't even get some of our order. Went in feeling hungry after a long walk, most of us came out feeling hungrier. There are lots of good... More

Haven't been to the Albert in a while. Popped in today and thought the new paint job looked great. Lovely little place, brilliant friendly service and excellent food.

The lunchtime food was excellent the lamb Tagine was very well cooked the dessert was also memorable.The beer I had was well kept (Osset Brewery) the cloudy cider at 7.3% is without doubt falling down fluid.This pub is well worth a visit.

This is so welcome in Ely: I loved that they kept the real Pub feel and didn't over 'modernise'. The atmosphere is very warm, friendly and unpretentious but the food is the best in Ely in my opinion (I edit cookbooks for a living), and very reasonably priced. They've got it just right. They keep it simple and use the... More

We stopped in Ely in desperation having completely failed to find a public loo anywhere in Norfolk on our drive back from the coast. We found the public loos closed on the Cathedral Car Park, but a lovely lady suggested that we try the Prince Albert Pub just across the road. I am really glad that we did. The Barman... More

I have just returned with my husband after a most enjoyable lunchtime meal which I luckily won from Local Secrets From the time that we entered until the time we left we could not fault it in any way. The staff, food and service was faultless and we would not have any hesitation in going again Many thanks to all... More

A huge array of hand pumps greet you from the front entrance to this much loved back street Ely pub. What a fabulous sight to greet you on arrival to a pub, where you know that the quality on offer is going to be good. And so it was. Well, the ale, anyway. We came for lunch as we had... More
