Prince Albert, Ely
Most towns have a pub like this - or if they don't, they should think about getting one. Some of you may have already guessed that the Prince Albert is the classic back-street real ale pub. Nothing special to look at from the outside, the inside would be described by advocates of modern bars as tired, worn and grubby. We prefer to think of it as homely, unpretentious and cosy. You'll usually find a reasonable choice of around four ales and some traditional pub grub, served up by friendly staff. There is also an award-winning outside space to enjoy in the warmer weather, which is more like a neighbour's well tendered back garden than anything found in a pub. It is also open all day, which is more than could be said of some other nearby pubs (and which is why we couldn't review them). Probably the best pub in Ely.
