An unusual choice is the Almonry Restaurant & Tea Rooms in the College, Ely Cathedral, High Street (tel. 01353/666360). Housed in the medieval college buildings on the north side of the cathedral, this is a comfortable tearoom with table service in a beautiful 12th-century undercroft licensed to sell drinks. You can take your tea out to a garden seat in good weather. It is open for late-morning coffee, lunches, and afternoon teas. Meals start at £7.
