About the Pub

The Ely is a traditional English country hotel and pub with red-brick walls covered in ivy, pan-tiled roof and a friendly home-from-home atmosphere.The whole look is spacious, light and airy with a modern feel and it has mixed seating areas including sofas. Cask ale can be enjoyed by an open fire in the bar in the winter and in the al fresco beer garden. Three real ales are available from the Greene King range including a house beer Adam's Ale, believed to be Hardy & Hanson Bitter. Food is served all day with special themed food nights, such as curry Monday & Tuesday and a Sunday carvery. There are also £6 deals for weekday lunchtime meals.

Historic Interest

The Ely was named after a famous racehorse and built from the proceeds of a bet. Ely won a prestigious race at Ascot and a man who placed his last few pounds on the horse was more than delighted when it won the race and he won his fortune! (source Pub Explorer Website)
