Our first stay at this lovely pub in Hinxton. We had been let down by our favourite watering hole so we were not sure what to expect with this new adventure. We were not disappointed and have even booked up for next year already! The gardens were well kept and the car park area clean and tidy. The accommodation was... More

We stayed one night at The Red Lion. Staff were very pleasant, room was spotlessly clean and quite basic. Rooms are contemporary and in a separate building. Pub is very cool, low ceilings, classic decor, good choice of beers with good service and food. Breakfast was very good. Hinxton is a classic small town, very charming all around. Totally enjoyable... More

I decided to try The Red Lion tor a business trip after staying at so many characterless chain hotels. It's a wonderful old pub in a quiet village but still close enough to Cambridge and the surrounding business and science parks. The accommodation was only built in 2008 so is modern and fresh and consists of individual units across the... More

Recommended The Red Lion by colleagues and I wasn't disappointed. Lovely pub in a quiet village location, accommodation set away from pub with pleasing outlook. No noise could be heard from the pub or car park when in room. Food was excellent (breakfast and evening), staff both friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

Went today with daughter and grandchildren for pre Mothers Day lunch, the food was great and the service couldn't of been better, two very nice and attentive waiters. Never seen grandchildren eat so well, had the same as the adults just smaller portion. Nice not to see the usual child's menu, ie: nuggets fish fingers etc. well done.

My grandparents ran this pub when my mum was born in the 60's so I thought it would be good to go back and see what its like. We went for dinner at 7pm on a Saturday night and we were the only people in there. Food was really good but service could have been improved. Some of the locals... More

The service was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room had everything I needed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. There was even a DVD player in the TV! The pub and restaurant food is great. A lovely traditional English experience!

We (3 of us) had a super lunch at the Red Lion - two of us had the Duck and my brother in- law was thrilled with his fish meal [gurnard] . Both not cheap but beautifully cooked and the service was equally excellent. We will definitely be back!

Good size room with some nice details but for the size paid, I would expect a little more. Comfortable bed, reasonable linen, good bathroom. Small tv but great picture quality. Negative points-scuff marks on wall, small hole in curtain & toiletries locked up, I prefer small toiletries I can pick up. Our room was cold but staff were friendly &... More

My husband and I stayed here overnight on the way to Scotland, and unfortunately, we were both disappointed. We booked through Booking.com and paid £115 for B&B, which is expensive but we were thinking it would be a wee bit of luxury. The rooms are in wee cottages at the back of the pub, and the room was fine, nothing... More
