My wife and I stayed here for just two nights while we visited family in Cambridgeshire and wanted to visit Ely while nearby. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed at reception and were offered to have our case carried to our room. We only met two people on duty during our visit and suspect one of the... More

A fine Saturday meant we could sit out in the extensive garden area. We were entertained by a local ukulele group! Sadly the lunch menu was limited to either hamburger or hot dog & chips. They weren't expensive but neither were they very interesting. Great chips and really friendly service but surely we could be s bit more imaginative with... More

Had a wonderful 3 night stay. Good food, comfortable room, lovely outlook, scenic location. Staff was friendly and obliging, particularly the young landlady. The new honeymoon suite should be excellent. Would love to be there in July/August to sit on the deck or under the willows to enjoy the peaceful ambience outside. An unexpected jewel of a find!

As a stop-off on a tour of East Anglia this is very convenient, Nice riverside situation and a very good doublle bedroom. The young landlady was very accommodating giving us dinner on the pub's day off and we had a super breakfast next morning with lots of choice. It'd be even nicer in the summer when you could sit ouside... More

Stayed at the Three Pickerels after a visit to Ely Cathedral. Comfortable room with a view of the river. Excellent full English cooked breakfast. Great location for Ely and RSPB reserve at Ouse Washes.

A comfortable double room above the pub in a quiet village a few miles from Ely. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable, with lovely view onto the riverside. Small but adequately equipped ensuite with strong hot shower. Good breakfast in the morning. Friendly staff.

WoW! What an absolute gem! Farm Eggs, Local Ham and Chips all washed down with Red Diesel (guest ale). Great night sleep and a hearty breakfast the next morning! I'll definitely be calling back when I'm next in the area...friendly owners also.

Very handy to Cambridge, Ely and surrounds. Bedroom well appointed, shower very good. Emily is wonderful host, great breakfast cook and very helpful with our bags on the stairs - a big plus for older couples!

Staying at the inn was an absolute pleasure. Fantastic location next to the river. Very good breakfasts and the evening meals menu is traditional pub fare. The quality of the food was good especially the ham, eggs and chips which was fantastic. Friendly and very hard working staff/owners. Only negative point was the shower which leaked a bit. Beds new... More

We were looking to find somewhere to stay that was fairly rural and slightly outside of Cambridge and this place certainly did the job - it's about 20 minutes drive from Cambridge (probably slightly shorter to Ely). Not the easiest place to find despite Mepal being a relatively small village so probably best to have a map for the journey.... More
