After three months of being closed, the restaurant team ‘softly’ reopened their doors on July 9 having implemented social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of customers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

David Toulson-Burke, owner of 11a on Forehill, said: “We ‘softly’ opened our doors last week with a view to ease back into the trading community of Ely after what has been and remains a difficult time for all.

“After applying safety processes, and trying not to be invasive, we are back with some changes.
