Until about 2004 the building on Ely Road, Landbeach between Car Dyke Road and Cambridge Road was The Slap Up pub. It had been there since 1864 or earlier, according to Kelly's Directory (quoted on British History Online). The gravel pits on the other side of the Ely Road, north of Waterbeach Road, are also known as the Slap Up Pits.

The pub later became an Indian restaurant, the Slap Up Tandoori, and after another change of ownership in December 2010 the Bollywood Spice.
