The Lamb is centrally situated in Ely, so we decided to call in for an evening meal after a few hours spent mostly looking around the cathedral. The décor was OK, but the surface of our wooden table had some sticky patches on it – it hadn’t been properly wet-wiped, which is never an encouraging... read more

The place is nice but the food is really nothing special, I would classify this as below average pub food. Puddings are good but you can't go wrong with sugar! There are better places in Ely

My wife and I ate dinner here on a visit to Ely. We ate in the bar and ordered two different steak meals which were prepared to our liking and well presented. The staff were ok but you do have to order at the bar which I know is not everybody's cup of tea. That said it worked well and... More

We ate at The Lamb a couple of years ago and were disappointed with our experience, however putting this behind us we decided to give it another go...... We booked a table a few days prior to our visit and we were pleasantly greeted by a waitress and shown to our table. The restaurant has two main dining areas and... More

Good pub food served by friendly staff in nice decor. Any place that allows dogs is a plus for us. Efficient service and really good selection on offer - shame we couldn't fit dessert in as they sounded scrummy.

A fairly sterile, identikit GK pub in the city centre. There's nothing wrong with it particularly but neither does it set the heart racing.

Popped in for breakfast, there was no service or clear direction of where to sit on arrival. Once we found out all the tables were dirty, after around 10 minutes someone come and 'cleaned' the table using a dirty cloth to wipe down the table. It seemed somewhat understaffed, the staff were friendly but didn't have the time to offer... More

As mentioned by others, this is a pub that serves food,so the atmosphere is more pub than restaurant, i.e., a bit noisy and definitely convivial. It's central, close to the cathedral, where we were attending an evening lecture. The menu is varied and the service very good. We had the beef and ale pie and the duck. Both were very... More
