The Company

Arbuckles is operated by all the staff and management, under an ‘Employee Ownership Trust Scheme’ carrying on the successful legacy of founders John and Maxine Murphy.

By establishing an Employee Ownership Trust in December 2018, John & Maxine – who first opened the Downham Market restaurant in 2008 – have rewarded all their staff for the vital part they’ve played in making Arbuckles the successful restaurants they are today.

An Employee Ownership Trust effectively means that every member of staff and management are owners of the business, and will share in the success and profits.

The Restaurants

The first restaurant, on the A10 at Downham Market, is a large 340 seater restaurant with three distinctive rooms. Ideally designed to cater for all occasions including larger group bookings (subject to availability), family groups, casual dining and couples.

The Ely restaurant, opened in 2017 is different in design is smaller in size (170 covers) and situated on Ely leisure complex adjacent to the cinema. Designed with smaller group bookings of 8 people and less, family groups in large booth seating areas and couples who want to use us before or after the cinema or on a night out!

Our vastly experienced team of chefs and waiting staff (all now owners!) will continue to do their utmost and exceed your expectations.

Arbuckles opens 7 days a week for quality breakfasts, made with the finest ingredients and freshly ground coffee. On the first Sunday of every month there’s live Jazz from 9.30am to 11.30am in our Downham Market restaurant and the last Sunday of every month in our Ely restaurant.

Also available from midday is the main menu. Delicious steaks, ribs, fajitas, grills, salads and many more delicious combos await hungry appetites, and all at very reasonable prices. Full allergen information is available with additional menu options for Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan guests.

To compliment the tasty food, the Arbuckles Bar serves a wide range of beers, spirits, soft drinks and coffees, alongside wine and cocktail menus.
