Good menu, with a mixture of light bites and more substantial meals. I had a burger which was homemade and really tasty and came with coleslaw and chips. The rest of the family had sandwiches (one had ham, the other chicken with avocado) which both came with a few chips and a pinch of salad. They both said the sandwiches... More

Twice we've been here now for food in the restaurant and each time was excellent. The location is so perfect by the river but to have good food in such a perfect setting is pure 10/10. Thank you staff at The Cutter, Ely.
