Blackthorn _ left this review about The Cutter Inn

Located in a prime position on Ely’s attractive riverside, it doesn’t have a large beer garden like some of it’s competitors with just a small terrace along the front, but is nonetheless still a pleasant spot and it has the advantage of actually selling proper beer unlike the nearby Riverside.

Internally it has a vaguely nautical feel perhaps, as befits it’s location, with whitewashed wooden panelling on some of the walls, an unusual boat shaped bar counter which was something of a feature as well as a couple of oars hung above the door. Flooring was a mixture of some attractive tiling in the main bar with tartan carpet elsewhere. A cooper clad fireplace was off to one side, and a large black and white photograph of the pub took up much of one wall. It’s presumably been renovated at some point and is a little more contemporary than I expected, but it’s still a pleasant enough spot if a little lacking in character. A restaurant area was off to the right, and this was more modern in style and even included a baby grand piano in the lobby.

Beers on tap were Barsham Norfolk Topper and Rocket Ales Sidewinder Citra along with Sparta and Pegasus from Milton Brewery. Unfortunately the only cider was Aspall’s, which was all the more disappointing in light of the Thatcher’s beer runners on the bar counter.

Trades on its bucolic waterside position (and also its proximity to the rail station). The interior is a stark, stripped-out affair, whitewashed to the point of death. The key is to grab a seat on the terrace overlooking the water. Surprisingly good cask selection and my Barsham Norfolk Topper was in good nick too (NBSS 3.5). Think this one is all about timing things right – a nice pint on a warm summer’s day overlooking the Ouse, pootling boats and trundling trains is a far different proposition to sitting inside a characterless barn under grey clouds six months later I’d imagine.

Handy for the railway station and in a delightful setting on the water, but unlike the previous reviewer I left this one till last, partly because it seemed so busy as I approached. Later, shortly before my 15:18 train, it had quietened down as the lunchers dispersed. This is a substantial building, which has been sympathetically opened out somewhat, with a change of character between the room through which I entered at the side (which has its own section of bar counter), and the main room at the front, looking out over the staithe. Here the bar counter has been constructed in the shape of a large rowing boat, or cutter. More importantly, it features four hand pumps with three real ales on at the time of my visit, two from Milton and one from Barsham. I went for the Milton Pegasus, which was in very good condition. I had carefully planned my trains to give me time for a quick crawl around the city, but if you only have time for one pub, there can be no doubt this is the one.
