Deciding it would be nice for a late Sunday roast called into the lamb. Young lady served us our drinks very polite and helpful. Gave order which came promptly. Another lady asked if everything was ok soon after the meal was given we said yes it was fine. After a few minutes into the meal I suddenly thought there was... More

Visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Ely. The first was due to their steak promotion, which we enjoyed so returned a couple of weeks later for a birthday celebration. All the party including the children enjoyed their meals. Staff were helpful. Will visit again

Very disappointing food here. Of a party of six we had to send two back as they were not thoroughly cooked. Fish was over cooked and dry. Our waiter just said Oh Well and shrugged his shoulders. Will be a long time before we go back.

A good, rather than excellent venue situated in the town/city area. The food and drink is reasonably priced for a hotel and the location is ideal for refreshments whilst visiting Ely.

As a single traveller I appreciated the spacious double room. Be warned parking is a real issue, very limited indeed. No lift was challenging on my ( temporary ) dodgy knee, but the exercise was probably good for me! Rooms were very hot so the fan provided was in constant use!, it was a very hot few days tho! Air...

Although I was given a large room it was unbearably warm. An electric fan was provided but the real issue was the fact that the window would only open a few centimetres. Bed fine but furnishings and decor drab and tired. The bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke. A colleague found someone already occupying his bed! I think that the explanation... More

An old hotel well past its best with a public bar that adjoins the restaurant which is a pity as the menu is better than average. If disabled find another hotel.

I spent two nights eating at The Lamb recently when visiting Ely with friends and enjoyed both occasions. Good food and reasonable prices with a good atmosphere.
