Fodor's Review

Scrubbed pine tables fill the main dining room of this converted fire station near Ely Cathedral; another room, used when there's a crowd, has an open fireplace and a polished wood floor, and also serves as an art gallery. The menu could include traditional fenland recipes like sea bream with prawn and watercress sauce, as well as more familiar English fare, such as roast leg of lamb with fresh herb stuffing. Desserts might include treacle pudding (a sticky, steamed cake) or homemade ice cream. Reserve ahead for afternoon tea (£19).
