The Royal Standard started as a one room public house in the 15th Century and is the oldest building on Ely's Fore Hill.
The building has been extended over the years and is now one of Ely's most popular dining and meeting places, attracting both the local residents and visitors.
Out extensive food menu is focused on fresh and local as well as seafood and steak, with a good selection of traditional pub food thrown into the mix.
An eclectic 60 bottle wine list compliments the varied menu and you can also expect to find well kept real ales, cocktails and a great range of premium spirits.
Just as important, we are proud of the service we give and the atmosphere we create!
An amazing restaurant in Ely! Very lucky to have this on our doorstep.
Great food, great drinks, great people - the steaks are amazing, as is everything else - wines, beers, everything!!
Vast improvement in everything since the takeover. Good quality food/drink and service. Worth a visit.
