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.

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

I stayed here on a hot and sunny Wednesday 11th June 2014 and couldn't have wished for a better location. Situated by the lazy New Bedford River and just on the edge of the village of Mepal on the old and mostly unused Bridge Road. It's a quiet and peaceful place. As it had been a hot sunny day I...

Stayed here for 1 night in the double room. It's a really lovely, relaxing, friendly and clean place. Fantastic location on the river and short driving distance to Ely. Need a car to get around if staying here, however, the pub and restaurant downstairs was a great place to eat and relax - no need to leave the premises. Vegetarian... More

I stayed last weekend at The Three Pickerels on a B & B basis and found it to be very good, clean, comfortable and an ideal place to stay for Ely and surround area. It has decking overlooking the river. I had a twin room as single occupancy which overlooked the rive. It was a very pleasant en-suite room, the... More

We returned (just for a meal and a drink) to "an old friend" The Three Pickerels Pub at Mepal, after an absence of about a year, and found it was under new management, The menu was greatly inferior to what we were expecting (A layby chuck wagon has a better selection.) as was the beer. However, we decided to try... More

A nice comfortable pub by the river, with friendly host and excellent breakfast. Clean room with WiFi and parking. It is a pub, so expect a little noise until 11:00 pm but it didn't bother us. Close by the river and good place to enjoy a nice walk and bird watch.

We stayed here one night as working in the area, we were greeted by the lovely landlady Emily. We were shown straight to our rooms which were clean and comfortable, although mine a little cold but was provided a heater. Food was spot on I recommended the Nacho's!! We were up early for breakfast and Emily got up especially to... More

Stunning location, lovely and clean rooms and really helpful and friendly staff (owner?) The lady who I think owns it couldn't have made me feel more welcome if she tried! Very genuine person and really makes you feel like they want you there. The menu was great and they were very accomodating to my vegan dietary requirements, even with no... More

Needed somewhere to stay near Ely. I was so glad that we chose The Three Pickerels, rather than the usual type of hotels in Ely. The location is amazing by the river with weeping willow trees all around, and the main road just ends over the bridge, so there is no through traffic. You can walk by the river or... More
