the price is good, the food is good, most of the time,for the price you cant complain.

“Another great meal at The Five Miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Yet another great meal at The Five Miles. We had a chicken roast dinner, and a chicken in leek sauce for mains, then a lemon sponge and bakewell tart for dessert. All homemade and quite lovely. The service was great, both with food and at the bar. This is a pub/restaurant and the standard is exceptional. Yesterday there was a fantasic crowd of people, dining, eating and celebrating birthdays/anniversaries or just enjoying Sunday by the river in lovely surroundings. This isn't a restaurant, most mains are under £10 but you can have great steaks and fish for less than £20. Pubs rarely serve Hare, Pheasant, Red Snapper, Sardines, Partridge, Smoked Fish, Mussels, Rabbit, Zander......... but this one does ! Surely the best pub/restaurant in the East of England. Hard to find but worth looking for.

“Very poor food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Visited the no hurry for the first time in a while, it's looking a bit tired these days, in particular the main entrance which looks seriously scruffy. I ordered the pork belly, my friend the cod. When it arrived, the mash was lumpy, the pork not particularly hot except at one end where it was burning hot, so microwaved I guess. Having eaten the pork, on the plate, underneath the pork, I found a blue sticky label which had obviously come off something else as it said salmon!!!!! Not impressed!!!

My friends cod also seemed to have been reheated, the chips where nasty, and she was rather ill in the night, so I guess it wasn't heated thru correctly!!

I didn't complain, as the staff behind the bar all appeared to be 18 ish, so would have been completely pointless.

Will be in no hurry to visit again!!! £26 for two microwaved meals that were this poor is disgusting, avoid except for a quiet pint, even then check to make sure the glass is clean!!!

“Great mooring spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Loved this pub for it's free mooring, great food, and scenery complete with a swan nest just across the river. If you're boating on the Cam this is just great. The grandkids never got bored for the 2 days we spent here. The staff were very accommodating about letting us charge our phones and IPads too.

“Mussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Its rare to come across Mussels in Ely and surrounding area's so I'm always pleased to come here and have some. However I do believe this is more appropriate to have something small like this and go for a drink and a light lunch rather than a meal as other times I have come to the no hurry I've been very disappointed with there chips and vegetables. Apart from that the pub has a very nice feel, nice bands from time to time and is sitted by a very nice seating area and river. Perfect place for going in the sunshine!
