    What our customers say

    Ely is a sleepy little town with a cathedral (which is meant to make it a city, no?) and has the finest tea rooms in Britian. And can I attest not only to the range of their teas but their quality. It was also the site of the most delicious quiche I have ever tasted. Rachel's salmon and asparagus combo will take a deal of beating.

    Take a tour inside our tearoom and Fine B&B! Full screen available in top right corner. Navigate your way around by clicking on the white directional arrows to move from room to room. Zoom in and out with the plus and minus symbols.

    Starting out in our kitchen, you may follow the arrows either left into the main part of the tearoom or go straight ahead and then turn right, through the white door into what we call our Hall which is where we have extra tearoom seating. Carry on left through another white door into the entrance of our fine B&B. Follow the arrows up the stairs and when you reach the landing you may go left down the landing into the Brewery House Suite or right down the stars into our Cottage Suite.
