Decor was just lovely, Scandinavian Christmas feel. Very comfortable with covid guidelines, well separated and all wearing face masks. We had been to Ely for coffee and cakes often but hadn’t had the chance to get dinner before now. Dinner was delicious, I had the special Sole and my partner the steak, which was perfectly cooked. I didn’t get the name of the waitress, but we were sitting upstairs early Friday evening the 18th of December- she made the evening all the better, so friendly and really knew her stuff food and wine wise. Really lovely evening all over!

Had a boozy Christmas lunch with 3 friends. We had buttermilk crispy chicken burger and hamburgers which were fresh and delicious. Got recommended a beautiful Austrian Sauvignon blanc which we got more to bring home. Very friendly staff. Very pleasant experience.

Such a lovely experience as always with Ely. I felt so safe at all times, there was loads of room between us and other table next to us. The food was outstanding and the waiter was so helpful and knowledgable about the wine.

We had a lovely time at the ELY wine bar, our first night out for dinner since March. Outdoor seating was great as we got to people watch and enjoy the last of the good weather, and the food of course was delicious. Friendly service, good food; what more could you need? :)

Fantastic value for lunches and brilliant service. The wine choice was the best i had come across on the menu in a long time. Nice to know in future we cam also select wine from the shop and pay corkage to have it with our meal. Look forward to returning.
