Your dining choices

This is a bed and breakfast stay.

The Dining Room at Poets House offers a great selection of seasonal dishes using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The perfect place to simply relax in good company and refuel after a day outside. 


Start the day with a delicious breakfast, indulge in a tempting Sunday Lunch or treat yourself to a delectable Afternoon Tea. Head to the Sonnet Bar & Lounge for a relaxed drink throughout the day.


This small, charming and quintessentially English city is dominated by the jaw-dropping Ely Cathedral, this imposing structure features in the skyline for miles around.  This is England's largest cathedral and arguably its most beautiful, the highlight is truly its unique Octagon Tower that, when lit, can be seen for miles around. 


Ely has a beautiful waterside for strolls, where you can discover the local countryside. Visitors can enjoy a boat trip along the River Great Ouse, where you can feel the country wind on your face as the day floats by.


Embark on Ely's Eel Trail. This walk invites walkers to discover the architecture and history of this small city. Ely's marshland and waters once contained many eels which were part of the local staple diet. Visitors can still sample smoked eel at Ely's award-winning Farmers Market. The Eel Trail highlights around 18 local attractions starting at Oliver Cromwell's House and Ely's tourism information centre. Other highlights of the trail include The Bishop's Palace, Ely Porta, Ely Museum, the antique centre by the Waterside and of course the world famous Ely cathedral.



Why not take a day trip to Cambridge, a short distance? Be sure to see King’s College, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University Botanic Garden and Trinity College and punt across the River Cam. So too are many other fine museums, buildings and art galleries. Explore shops in ancient passageways set around the historic market place and colleges.
