Great food, friendly local staff. They take great pride in their work.
Very varied menu and had carvery which was really good. Service was good and friendly staff.
Lovely Sunday lunch , worth the wait
We were visiting for birthday celebrations and the staff really made us feel welcome with an impromptu candle and cake! Food is great - my steak was very tasty and perfectly cooked. Prices are reasonable. Special mention for Shashee who served us and was very helpful and courteous. Will definitely be going back regularly. More...
Great little foody pub, porkie burger right up there with best I've had.
Went to the Red House for a birthday lunch. The food was gorgeous! When you first view the menu, it seems pricey for a pub lunch, but well worth it! The service was fine. The garden area was nice to sit in. More...
Christmas Day menu, sitting at 3pm, was in a conservatory, great service, paced well, waitresses really switched on, starters lovely, mains, as a car very was mediocre, but allowance for Xmas day, and dessert nice, very attentive staff, even when I mentioned loo roll had run out, they responded promptly, first Xmas lunch out ever, and me and my daughter liked it , great service on a very demanding service, well done and thank you.....

Attentive service. Great food and drink. Pleasant atmosphere. I was alone but appeared to be welcoming to children
Just had a amazing Carvery & homemade cheesecake. Service was excellent & staff very polite :)
Today we had a lovely lunch here to celebrate my husbands birthday. Great food and great service. Thank you all, we loved it.
Wonderful place, yummy food, great selection on the menu & very clean. Management were very welcoming & staff were polite & helpful. I highly recommend.
I would say definitely don't judge the place by the outside, the inside is adorable, nicely spaced out, clean, and a perfect atmosphere for a date night. The staff was attentive and the service was great. The carvery looked amazing, but we did order from the menu and the pies, ribs and pudding was brilliant. Healthy portions left us very satisfied. Next time we will have to try a starter and desert because they looked very tempting also. More...
Second visit in 7 days..we couldn't wait to return and it didn't disappoint. We both had home made pie..it was superb..more meat than pie as it should be..nice fresh vegetables...fab range of desserts too good to pass by..also decaf coffee without fuss...we are boat owners in Ely but don't live here...we wish there was something like this restaurant at home...well done...see you again soon..also noticed you are a hotel...will check that out in the future.

Great Sunday carvery. I could cut the beef with a spoon, so tender and loads of it. Bit disappointed I didn’t have room for pudding. Nice pint of Charlie Wells Eagle.

Maybe at one point the restaurant had a few bad reviews but now it is very nice,everything is improved,the staff lovely as always and the food incredibly good,also I would kill for those delicious desserts,there is no way to go to The High Flyer and find nothing to eat because the menu has something for any taste,they are vegan and vegetarian friendly,also you can find gluten free and dairy free menus or when you book you can let them know what dish you would like the have and they will do it (applies only for costumers with special dietary requirements),Carvery is fantastic,you find it on every day of the week not only on Sunday. The interior looks very interesting and it just makes you feel cosy,there is the coffee shop which is very quiet,perfect for a tea and a good book,business meeting or a date.
The outside area is good for smokers and if you live in Ely you know that not a lot pubs/restaurants have a place where costumers can sit down,drink a coffee and smoke a cigarette,in the summer looks even better.
It is very clean,the cleanliness in the loos amazed me.
I will totally go there any time I will get the chance. Keep up the good work High Flyer,you are the best! Xx More...
4 of us came for lunch yesterday the carvery was very nice good selection of veg boiling hot scampi and burger was also good
Two friends and I had lunch on Tuesday, we were pleasantly surprised, none of us had been for several years,the decor is modern, and the food is exceptional, we all ended up with the carvery as it smelled and looked so good, we were not disappointed. We even managed to force down a dessert!!! We will definitely go again More...
Good afternoon we came to the high flyer today for lunch & it was delicious not to mention the outstanding customer service from Andre! He went above & beyond to accommodate our needs while there & was running around constantly for everyone enjoying there lunch. Thank you Andre �� More...
We had a lovely time here yesterday, I'm quite shocked to see the bad reviews as I can't think of anything negative! We didn't have a reservation so sat in the bar area and ordered lunch. The food was served to us within 15 minutes of ordering and was absolutely amazing! The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. I will definitely eat there again next time I'm in town. More...
I had just picked up a new bike from Norwich and was cruising around with a mate and found The High Flyer by accident. First thoughts were oh bloody hell this looks posh and dear. But we found a good choice on the menu at very reasonable prices and the food was delicious. The staff were really friendly and helpful, I must say that if I'm back in the area, as I live in Colchester I will definitely pop in again. More...

Just returned from Christmas lunch with my brother and his partner. We loved the decor, and tasteful decorations. We had a 12.00 booking and it would appear is if people were given different times to arrive which worked perfectly. No big queues and quiet enough to hear our conversation, but enough people around to make a great atmosphere. We were shown to our table and offered a glass of mulled wine, which was delicious! Our starters arrived in good time and we had a very enjoyable meal over about 2 hours or so. Staff so friendly and smiley, in particular Conrad who was our main server. Very relaxed way to eat our Christmas lunch. Recommended :-) More...

Overall outstanding meal and excellent service in a beautiful, modern and tastefully decorated pub. Visited on May 30th while on holiday in neighbouring Exhall. Discovered it was steak night and had 2 fillet steaks with a house red thrown in for just under £40 (sauces/toppers extra). The steaks were perfectly cooked to our liking and the accompanying mushroom sauce (my choice) and black and blue topper (melted blue cheese and mushroom; my partner's choice) were delicious. We had starters, whitebait with homemade tartar sauce, and creamy garlic mushrooms with garlic bread. Both were beautifully presented and very tasty. After those and the steak mains we didn't have room for pudding. Our waitress and the duty manager were very welcoming and helpful. One of the best meals out I've had in a while. I just wish we lived closer! More...
Had a lovely meal Saturday night sitting in the cool outside area. Staff very friendly and attentive. Good value for money
Brilliant experience. Excellent food. Tasty wholesome and well presrnted.
Home made soup. Perfect sea bass fillets. Scrummy Eton mess.
Two of our party however had issues. One had the lamb shank (or sparrow shank as he described it) . One had the sausages which unfortunately did not taste right being over full of herbs.
Good attentive service and friendly atmosphere. More...
The roast beef was a bit tough but everything else was great including the fast and frendley service. For just £11 each for a carvery there is nothing else you could ask for.
Doesn't look that exciting on the outside but great inside. We sat in the patio area as it was a warm day. The food and the service were great. A lovely place to eat. The staff are really good too. More...
Fabulous place to eat. Great food & friendly attentive staff in a lovely atmosphere 5*
Bright and airy. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and the food is excellent. Went with a party of friends. Looking forward to visiting again.
Absolutely fab! Amazing food, friendly and quick service and beautiful surroundings, couldn’t ask for a better Sunday dinner! Will be returning despite living 1 hour away! More...
Great service great food and well stocked bar
Wow, great refurb here, cosy, quaint and super food. Loving the decor here.
Good pub food. Friendly staff. Good for kids.
Classic pub grub with an excellent carvery. I have now been 3 times and I have gone for the carvery each time and have never been disappointed. I have tried all the meats and can honestly say I can't pick a favourite. All the classic vegetables are there. The Yorkshire puddings are a must. Service is good. Never had room for a desert though!
