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


It came as no surprise to any of us that the current Government announcement at the beginning of January put us into another lock down, so currently we are closed until further notice.  However the office team are still working Monday – Friday.



Wedding Couples


Don’t despair if you cannot come and to see us, for the time being we are successfully offering private video link show rounds. We know it’s not quite the same as visiting us in person, but it will still give you a fee for what we are all about at The Old Hall and also we love a chat regarding your potential wedding plans.  If you would like a virtual show round, please get in touch with the office and we can arrange one at a mutually convenient time, day or evening.

Sadly the Open day that was scheduled for Sunday 28th February 2021 has now been postponed to Monday 30th August 2021.

Booked wedding couples who are scheduled for meetings, this will now be done via zoom.  We will get in touch with you if you are due a meeting.



Staying at The Old Hall


As mentioned, the office is still open and ready to take bookings for your spring and summer staycations. It is very good for us all to dream about getting away.



Restaurant Bookings


Dinners and Sunday lunches here have proved very successful since July, so if you would like to plan a family get together or special celebration when we are open up again, please do get in touch.

Mothering Sunday on 14th March 2021 and Easter Sunday on 4th April 2021

Lunch bookings now being taken

A personal message from the proprietor


A big thank you to you all for being so very supportive.    There is a huge sense of hope now that the vaccines are being rolled out.  I wish you all a healthy New Year and I look forward to seeing you in person sooner rather than later, but in the meantime, I give you all a virtual hug!


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