We stayed here for one night and found it a very nice, if not exactly cheap place to stay. The room was large and nicely decorated. Breakfast was good in the pub restaurant and the dinner we had was excellent, with the only minor issue being the quality of the real ale.

We stayed at the Red Lion Inn for 2 nights whilst attending our Son's graduation in Cambridge. Lovely country pub, much nicer than staying in a city centre hotel. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, great shower! We didn't have any meals at the pub, apart from breakfast, which was most enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and went out... More

Excellent food and friendly service. Tasty well cooked homemade pies, a real winner. A pleasant change to have hot food on hot plates. Good accommodation away from any noise. A rare part of old England. Look forward to next visit.

We stayed in The T.R.L.I for Duxford airshow. However, the airshow was not all. Villages(Hinxton, Ickleton, Duxford) are old but very pretty, fresh air, rabbits, ivy... everything was impressive. Room was very neat and clean, of course. Every morning we had Cocoa that was deep and sweet. This was my first overseas trip. The Red Lion Inn Hinxston left us... More

We visited last week on the Cambridge News "Dine out for £10" deal. We hadn't booked but they kindly accommodated us anyway. Limited menu of starter and main course (which we expected) but the food was tasty and portions plentiful. We added one dessert and 4 drinks (2 soft) to our £20 bill so we still ended up paying nearly... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay.The room was very clean and had all the conveniences that we needed. The food was excellent and real ales in very good condition. All the staff were courteous friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay there again.

Been to the Red Lion for numerous years and recommended it to many but would no longer do so as we feel the standard has dropped considerably over the past couple of years. Ate there yesterday and so much has changed; No front of house charisma, very abbreviated menu, insufficient kitchen staff so really long wait (one hour) for the... More

Had a great meal here over the bank holiday weekend. Vast menu, friendly staff and a lovely beer garden. I had the home made burger which was excellent and my wife had the fish and chips which again was very good. The children's menu has lots of variation too and both of ours eat everything. I would have given a... More

We booked an overnight stay having read the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and because of its proximity to the Duxford Air Museum. In essence the Red Lion is a pub with some nice rooms built in a separate single story block in the back garden which have parking close by. Leave your luggage in the car when checking in... More
