Had a midweek suppers: fish and chips and another of gammon and chips - huge portions and they were fine. (2 mains and 2 drinks = £28) Very welcoming and pleasant service. Modern interior and relatively busy. Large village high street location. Noticed there were rooms on site, which with the proximity to the A10 would be a perfect location...

We have just stayed in this hotel for five nights. From start to finish, our visit was excellent. The hotel is situated on the main street running through Little Downham but as there is very little traffic, this was no problem. Little Downham is beautiful and we particularly liked walking the nature trail and sitting in the peaceful community orchard...

This is the best steak night around. The quality of the steak is incredible and the service was second to none. Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal along with the accompaniments and bread basket.

We had lunch here as a party of six. The staff let us push two tables together as they didn't have a table big enough. All the staff were really pleasant and friendly. The pub was really nicely decorated and very clean. One person had lasagne and he said it was really tasty. The rest of us had tuna mayo...

Stayed in January 2017. Difficult to fault anything. Food was good and breakfast was excellent. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the underfloor heating a welcome surprise when getting out of bed on a cold frosty winters morning. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay close to Ely.

We held a family event here on 18th November with a buffet lunch for 40 people. A number of us also stayed for one, and some for two nights. The food was delicious, the staff were very pleasant and efficient and the rooms were nicely furnished and absolutely spotless. Highly recommended.
