4 of us had a working breakfast here at about 9am during a weekday. Big mistake going so late as the pastries were gone from the buffet and there was no milk for cereals. This was quickly resolved. You can help yourself to fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereals whilst the waitress sorts out the hot drinks that you order. You... More

You are obviously paying a premium for the hotels position. Our room was clean and had basic items. The bed was a little small for a double. There is limited parking. The food is standard pub chain food. It gets very busy as it is in the centre of things so the service can be a little slow.

Very pleasant restaurant but slow service. The food was nice but fairly small portions representing only average value for money.

Awhile ago we tried this hotel for a meal and were very dissapointed with the quality of the meal. However we tried again with what is the Golden Years menu or something silly like that title. For they must think we old Gimmers only exist on scraps; what an insult.

We've just returned from a day trip in Ely, which we really enjoyed -- with the exception of our meal at the Lamb. We didn't read the reviews, and the restaurant looked homey and inviting, so we had lunch there. I ordered the Sunday roast with turkey, my husband the same with pork and my son had salmon with salad.... More

Had we read the reviews we wouldn't have gone; we didn't, we went and enjoyed it so much we returned a few weeks later. The lunchtime menu was great, simple, affordable, family friendly. Service was great, food tasty and hot, quick to arrive and no complaints from any of the six of us. Good selection of ales and wines. We... More

I have to say I'm a bit of a food snob, and hate standard pub food, which tends to be beige and deep-fried, but we were on a two week holiday and it can get quite expensive eating out every night when you're a family of 4 with 2 strapping teenagers. So we were delighted to find The Lamb which... More

Tiny Portions, cocky manager, slow service and horrible food. I had a voucher for 50% of my mains which, after arguing over the validity of it, managed to pay for the shockingly small amount of dry, unappetising food presented. Glad I didn't pay full price. Should have asked for my money back really but just couldn't be bothered with the... More

We have eaten here on several occasions over the past year and the recurring theme is that the kitchen cannot keep up with orders. That said when the food arrives it is piping hot and of good standard fare. Good menu. Worth a try but be patient if its the weekend.
