View of the West front of Ely Cathedral, and the old Bishop's Palace, Ely, taken last Monday, when Ann, her three siblings and their partners met up at the Old Fire Engine House, in Ely, for lunch. The lunch was as good as it always is at this establishment, and a good, sociable time was had by all. A virtue of this establishment that I've not mentioned before is that if we've booked a table, and (given the distances involved - turn up early, coffee is served (on the house) until all the others get there). It's these little touches, that all the older customers are aware of, that makes this such a popular house of refreshment. Should stress, too, that Ann and I have been using this restaurant for somewhere between forty and fifty years, and have invariably enjoyed it. A lovely day out , as always.
