A beautiful historic pub dating back to the 15th century, The Royal Standard Ely is a cosy escape, filled with rural charm. Modern European flavours are served alongside cask ales, with a tranquil al fresco area, perfect for sunny days.

Fresh, seasonal ingredients go into the Royal Standard Ely menu to make up a great selection of inventive European dishes. To start, there is salmon tartare with apple and avocado mousse and caviar crème fraîche, along with wholesome soup of the day. For mains, there are pub classics like sausage and mash with braised red cabbage and gravy, along with juicy steaks with sumptuous sauces and all the trimmings from the grill. There are also vegetarian delicacies, and a dedicated kids' menu.

Sunday roasts at The Royal Standard Ely are extremely popular, while the dessert menu offers tempting treats like steamed treacle pudding with fruit compote and double cream ice cream. There are cask ales at the pumps, world beers, and a concise wine list.

Also offering popular live music events, The Royal Standard Ely is a 13-minute walk from Ely Rail Station.

    The food and service was excellent - definitely recommend it.
    Only reason it is not 5 stars was due to the sharing platter being a bit sparse on bread to go with the cured meats.

    Lovely food & good atmosphere. Nice place to eat in Ely if you don't want Indian or Chinese. Well worth a visit.

  • ((((* 28 November 2016 by Ricky from Ely

    Lovely place as usual with good food and service, although on the night we went it was a little noisy from a group on a table, but that's not the restaurants fault so didn't end up being a quiet romantic meal as expected.

    Very good service and friendly too. We turned up earlier than expected and no problem. Food was excellent although we only had fish and chips - beautifully cooked.
    If going to Ely again I would certainly visit this lovely old pub again.
