Sponsors and Partners

Eel Day simply wouldn't happen without the support of our sponsors and community partners so a huge thank you to them all.

Our Main Sponsor for 2019 

The Cutter, Grand Central and Riverside Kitchen Bar are three of Ely's well loved riverside restaurants owned by TLC Inns an independent, multi award winning company who operate nine restaurants across the region. As a family owned and operated company, they are real foodies and feel their food is a good way of bringing people together and creating great experiences and memories.

The Cutter Inn with its superb location alongside the River Great Ouse, is the perfect place for socialising whether with family, friends or colleagues, there is no finer place to relax and enjoy quality traditional British pub food served in stylish surroundings.

In contrast, at the Grand Central the food revolves around big bold American flavours from their 4 hour slow cooked St Louis cut ribs to marinated chicken and pepper skewers. The food is focused on flavour and the feeling you get when you try something new and amazing.

New to the Riverside in 2017, RKB is the perfect place to meet, eat or simply relax. With its 100 seated alfresco dining area as well as The Yard, which is a tranquil and sheltered area just perfect for a cheeky cocktail!

TLC Inns is proud to be involved in such a key event which brings thousands of visitors into Ely and directly to the beautiful Waterside.

We are once again delighted and most grateful, that TLC Inns are supporting this event for the third year.
