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 Ely restaurant, opened in 2017 is situated on Ely Leisure Complex adjacent to the cinema. Designed with smaller group bookings of 6 people and less, family groups in booth seating areas and couples who want to use us before or after the cinema or on a night out!

The original Downham Market restaurant, situated on the A10, is now taking bookings for tables up to a maximum of 6 covers for Covid safe dining.  The restaurant has recently been refurbished throughout and now boasts our new ‘Secret Garden’ area.

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. 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.

Arbuckles Gift e-vouchers are now available.
