The Old Hall is a superb country retreat within a mile of the heart of historic Ely in Cambridgeshire. This recently renovated Jacobean manor house, with stunning views over lakes to Ely Cathedral, offers all that is best in English Country House hospitality.


From sumptuous Bed & Breakfast accommodation, real food inspired by tradition, to rooms to hire for Private Events and Weddings.


Covid-19 Update


We are here for you


The Government announcement on the 22nd February 2021 has given us a route map to when we are able to get back to life at The Old Hall as we once knew it.  The vaccine roll out has been a huge success and we hope that it continues to be a huge success for us all.




Wedding Couples


We will be welcoming back face to face show rounds from Monday 17th May.  Please phone the office for an appointment. In the meantime, we will continue to successfully offer private video tours.  We know it’s not quite the same as visiting us in person, but it will still give you a feel for what we are all about at The Old Hall and also we love a chat regarding your potential wedding plans.

Booked wedding couples who are scheduled for meetings, this will continue being done via zoom for the time being.  However from Monday 17th May, face to face meetings will resume. Hooray! We will get in touch with you if you are due a meeting.

The Open Day in on Monday 30th August.  We look forward to seeing many of you.




Staying at The Old Hall


Yes we will all need a well-deserved break from home.  From Monday 17th May we are able to open our doors up once again and offer accommodation with inside/outside dining.  The office is open and ready to take bookings for your summer staycation. It is very good for us all to dream about getting away.




Restaurant Bookings

From Thursday 20th May we will be restarting dinners and Sunday lunches, which proved very successful when we did it in July.  So if you would like to plan a family get together or with friends, please do get in touch with the office to make a reservation.

A personal message from the proprietor

A big thank you to you all for being so very supportive.   I would not want you to think I have had my feet up while under lockdown.  Menu tastings have been carried out, the house completely redecorated, development of a Topiary Garden for outdoor dining and something else is sprouting………… I will leave you guessing for the time being!


Alison Morbey


We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Hall once again very soon.
