It’s difficult these days for a traditional butchers to survive, let alone a traditional pork butchers.
Edis of Ely , definitely qualifies as a local institution. At Christmas the queues are down the street.
I no longer live in Ely, but I grew up there and have recently been visiting my mother, where she told me of its predicament.
It’s been a local fixture for over 60 years. It’s where I had my first brawn. It’s where my mum got my haslet for my school packed lunches and where she bought sausage meat for sausage rolls. It also sells the renound ( well locally) Newmarket sausages
It’s been closed for while now refurbishment. It is though in a Grade II listed building, close to Ely Cathedral. The council and owners are at an impasse, re the alterations and according to my mother , it won’t reopen. I’m hoping a compromise can be reached. If not I hope this is a fitting tribute for the type of place we need to keep hold of.
