Restaurant description

With a whimsical blend of rustic rural and Renaissance styles, The Eltisley is a beautiful restaurant, bar and garden. Inventive international recipes are served alongside cocktails from the bar, with al fresco seating being the perfect tranquil hangout for leisurely meals.

The Eltisley menu is a mouthwatering showcase of classic British dishes combined with eclectic international flavours. To start, there are light nibbles like smoked mackerel pâté with spiced crème fraîche, moving on to signature mains like the impressive hanging kebabs which come with options like bavette steak, or grilled and roasted vegetables with halloumi. Other indulgent recipes include sticky beef rib, or whole lobster with rich garlic butter sauce.

Desserts from the trolley at The Eltisley in St Neots are a real treat, with toasted marshmallow and fruit s'mores with chocolate sauce being a real crowd pleaser. From the bar, there are a range of beers, ales and stouts, as well as signature cocktails and a selection of fine wines.

With its stunning murals, exposed wooden beams and twinkling chandeliers, The Eltisley is a truly special venue to dine. St Neots Rail Station is a 10-minute drive away.

    The whole meal was spectacular- I had the bao bun to start, lamb for main and a banoffee soufflé for dessert - it was all absolutely excellent. I also loved how friendly the staff always are, chatting to us and playing with my son.

    Its a good looking pub inside, very comfortable too. The staff are the perfect balance between friendly and professional. Just for the record, my dinner companion is a chef at a private school in Cambridge. We had a roast lunch, hers lamb, mine beef. The meat was cooked perfectly. Roasts and Yorkshire just right. The veg was nice, but rather unhelpfully served in a tall vessel, they would have been much easier to access in a shallow dish. My companion's sherry trifle had too much gelatine in it, she feared her spoon would bounce across the room! And my Creme Brulee was grainy, where I've only ever had smooth creamy ones before.
