Good enough

Went to dinner on a Wednesday night. Food offerings were varied with a little something available for many tastes. Maybe a few too many. I didn't get any sense of there being a house special that sets the bar for the rest of the menu to aspire to, if you'll forgive the menu personification. I had... read more

We attended the High Flyer in Ely on Saturday 28th February at 8pm for a birthday meal for my mum with the entire family (8 of us). We were seated and were ready to order our main after much deliberation. We had to wave down a member of staff to take our order (not the best start). When she finally... More

This has to be the worst place I have ever been to. It used to be good but since the latest "takeover" it has gone drastically downhill. It only stays open if it wants to, both for food and for the bar - how do they expect to have customers if they lock them out if they fancy an early... More

We were very satisfied with our meals today. Got there about 1sh and had to wait for a table. Understand it has just been taken over by new people. The roast was very good and fresh. The staff are very helpful and best of all very reasonably priced. £7.95 p.person not bad for Ely. Would go again.

just went for a Sunday lunch - they really try and staff lovely and attentive. Unfortunately the food was an enormous letdown - meat dry, potatoes horrid and gravy really thin. Plenty of other venues to have a better Sunday cavery.

This pub is just slightly out of town and is a nice traditional style pub offering the usual drinks and pub grub. We had lunch here and would describe the menu as average and the food as ok. They have a large room to the side with TV for sport coverage and adjacent to large car park with a small... More

It's not a stunning culinary experience but it's not as bad as some of the reviews make out. been here twice and was not dissuaded from this return. Warm friendly atmosphere, generally good service (although why oh why they don't train young people how to pour wine I don't know, much pricier establishments are no better). I suppose the fact...

The meal me and my family had wasn't pleasant. The meat was very tough and could barely cut through it with the knife. The other meals on our table weren't great either, the fish pie was sloppy and didn't have much fish in it at all. The atmosphere wasn't nice. The loud music from the kitchen was over powering the...

Firstly the staff were fantastic! Friendly and very accommodating! Chatty! Couldn't have asked for better. However the food really let the place down altogether! Such a shame for a place in a great location and great potential with staff like that!
