Against the backdrop of the magnificent gothic style Ely Cathedral, you’ll find our Ely Prezzo restaurant. Housed in a lovingly restored period building, we’ve carefully chosen the restaurant décor to complement the historical surroundings. Weather permitting, finish your day sightseeing with a delicious meal on our terrace overlooking the Cathedral, or pick a comfortable corner inside to settle in for a night of good food and great company.
At Prezzo we want to create a genuinely inclusive workplace, where we embrace the differences of all our colleagues and celebrate diversity. We love to see applications from under-represented groups and welcome applications from individuals, regardless of their background. Prezzo joined the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in 2011.
