We are a large organisation and had not previously used this venue before. I must say I have been VERY impressed with the Red Lion. They have been very helpful throughout the booking and organisation of our big event. They were very helpful on the day and the food is AMAZING. Very friendly staff, no-fuss and professional. Definitely something to... More

I have stayed at The Red Lion on a weekly basis for over two years. Initially when my work began I struggled to find anywhere in the area where I would want to stay let alone return.Then I discovered a complete oasis, with character, comfort and exceptional service. And a very reasonable tariff. I have travelled nationally for business for... More

Stayed here for one night recently, OK the pub is very old and quirky but the rooms are very # very small and not cheap The room was very hot, tried it with the window open and then all you can hear is trains, eventually got to sleep to be woken at 04.45 by the refuse lorry (i think) emptying...

Dear Reviewer Thank you for your feedback. Firstly, please let me apologise for the issues you faced. The rooms are very quirky however we know that some travellers might not think the same as we do. The building dating back to the twelfth century has its draw backs and one of those is heat however we do have ample fans... More

We stayed here for one night after spending the day at the 70th Anniversary of D-Day Air Display at Duxford (only a mile or so away). There was some confusion about our booking (with booking.com) but the manager soon sorted it out and we were given the keys to Room 26. Be aware that there are some very low beams... More

We used the venue for a charity conference and overall got good service, and value for money. As I work for a charity we do need to find good value venues but still maintain a standard that shows we care for our guests and this did happen. Staff were attentive and professional, food was good but just a note that... More

We ate at the Restaurant (the only one in town) hard by the train station. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Ex across the street (same owner). They have a really good beer selection and you can buy smaller size glasses for only 2 pounds. The food is pretty good and not too expensive. Very historical and colorful place with... More

Attending a wedding locally, booked here for 2 nights in preference to the Holiday Inn as we thought the Red Lion would have more character. One good point - the staff were generally very pleasant and tried to help. It seems that their inability to help reflects more on the poor senior management of the place - lack of consistent... More
