Riverside Pub  & Restaurant


About us

Established in 1995, Five Miles From Anywhere No Hurry Inn is a pub and restaurant located in the Hamlet of Upware, just outside the ancient City of Ely in the Cambridgshire Fens.  Its beautiful setting overlooking the River Cam is within walking distance of Wicken Fen Nature Reserve and next to Upware Marina.

Serving traditional pub fayre, home cooked meals and a selection of specials that change daily, including gluten free food and drink, plus vegan and vegetarian options.  We have plenty of space in the bar, conservatory, restaurant and gardens, plus ample on site parking.

From the music to the carefully curated list of food and drinks, our friendly staff craft a unique experience for our guests. Whether it's a meal with friends and family, or just a quiet drink by the river, you’re always welcome.
