Eaten here a number of times. Always great food and a well kept cellar. Staff very friendly and great service. Would highly recommend this place for business meetings, family lunches or dinner. Great setting by the river.

My partner and I had lunch here after a Saturday morning shopping trip in Ely. We had the warm bread with oils and added the chorizo and olives to start. This starter was almost 10 pounds and though it was lovely, was clearly overpriced. For our mains I chose the house equivalent of a Hunters Chicken (I forget what they... More

I remember visiting this "Inn" many years ago when it was a "pub" and to be honest a bit of a dive. It is now a great place to eat, drink, sit by the river. And there is still a feel of the old pub in the bar. Lovely views across the river, great food - basic but good wholesome... More

As regular visitors to the Cutter, we are never disappointed the staff are friendly and always helpful, the quality of the food is always good and they have good portion sizes. The only issue would be, is that the menus in both the bar and restaurant are the same. They could offer a little more variety in the restaurant. It... More

I have eaten here several times, its a really good setting in the summer. I took my daughter who was back from University for lunch. This was my first visit since it has been refurbished and what a difference it makes. The food was as good as ever and the décor has really lightened the place up.

They tolerate a large number of Molly dancers descending on them every January and are always very nice to us. For this they should be commended!

I went for a meal with family just after Christmas. The place was heaving but service was swift, polite and very calm. The food was beautifully cooked and plentiful. A lovely meal.

We always put the Cutter on our list of places to go when visiting friends in Ely. We've never had a bad meal in 8 years. The burgers are good, the roasts are good, all the food is good. They also keep a good pint of Wherry. It's best to book if you're going to go on a weekend however.

Thank Christopher C
