“5 hours to get there, but no worries”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

As we progressed through Upware lock, we faced the ultimate dilemma; 1.5 hours to Cambridge, 2 hours to Ely and it was already 1:15pm on Sunday. What to do? Solution, moor up against another parked long-boat, get off and spend a leisurely afternoon at the 5 miles, have some lunch and go back home. Dilemma sorted. A glorious Sunday weather-wise had brought out all shapes and sizes, but the staff serving kept the food coming at a good old rate, so the afternoon went quite quickly. Our French guests enjoyed the sun, and all was well in the world. Idyllic.

“Family Gathering”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

There were twelve of us booked for 1pm on a Sunday..........most of us arrived on time but as always, there were stragglers! It didn't matter that two of the party were nearly 20 minutes late; even though the place was fit to bursting, it was that busy. The staff were amazing, polite, helpful and patient. There was a little wait for the food once ordered but we were told about it. It did not matter anyway as the food was superb, everybody enjoyed the food. We all had a lovely Sunday afternoon and will definitely be going back. Thank you to everyone that made our day great.

“Thought we had died and gone to heaven”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at approximately 2pm on Sunday 28th April. The car park was absolutely packed and we didn't expect to be able to get a table. The restaurant was full but the bar area had empty tables. The bar food is exactly the same but if you'd like to eat in the restaurant we would suggest you make a reservation in advance. We had table 10, there was plenty of choice on the menu and also on the specials board. We ordered the roast beef dinners at £9.95 a head. You may think this is expensive but for a roast dinner but when you see the quality of food presented you soon realise what great value for money this meal is. The vegetables include carrots, cabbage, broccoli,mashed swede, and cauliflower all freshly cooked and presented in a separate serving dish. The main plate had roast potatoes ( not aunt Bessie's) 5 or 6 thickly sliced beef and a homemade Yorkshire pudding and beautiful gravy. There was desert on the menu also but after eating the beef feast there was no way we could manage anymore food. You will not be disappointed visiting the five miles inn. I can't wait to go back :)

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Had Sunday lunch at No Hurry. Arrived approx 3oc. No problem gettinga seat, although there was a lotof people there. We stayed in the bar area as the resturant seemed to be full, it was Mothers day after all. The service was good, food came quickly and was piping hot and very tasty. There was a good choice on the specials board, I chose a roast beef dinner. Food was presented well and reasonably priced.It is very nice to sit at the window and watch the boats out on the river. I would recomend the No Hurry for unday lunch.They serve food all day.
