Family lunch

My sister and I met for Sunday lunch with our husbands, we have enjoyed a roast dinner here over the last few months. My sister and I had the roast beef which was better than the last time, it tasted perfect but was a bit on the tepid side. Our husbands opted for the roast belly pork. Last time... read more

I have been here several times now. The location is good and there is a lovely walk down by the river for when you need to walk off a desert! The food in this place is 8/10 and offers great value for money, the staff are always friendly and I have been back as a family, with Friends and as... More

Came here on Sunday meeting up with old friends, the decor has all been redone and its beautiful and rustic! The food was amazing too, I had the roast chicken which was cooked to perfection and I was surprised on how big the portion was! Didn't think I could manage a dessert so I shared the brownie but it was... More

We couldn't believe the change in this place. Chloe told us that it had been completely refurbished with a great menu and choice of beers and, boy, is she right! The interior has been tastefully refurbished being light and airy with plenty of space between tables but at the same time it feels cosy and intimate. The ales are a... More

We had a great time at the Red Lion mainly thanks to our waitress Flora who looked after us superbly from the word go. Even our 2 Mini Shnauzer dogs got her immediate attention and she delivered water for them - needed on a hot day - without us asking. Food was good, but kitchen service was slow, but Flora... More

Had heard the place was much improved. So decided to walk up with the family from Cambridge on Saturday. Right choice!!! Spent the afternoon sampling the local ales ( responsibly! ) and playing table tennis with the kids in the impressive garden. The ice cream cones from their garden 'beer and ices' shack was the perfect refreshment. We ended up... More

As locals we booked a table for dinner in order to take Czech Republic friends to Grantchester. There was no one else in the restaurant at 7pm. We asked for a larger than child's portion but not adult size for a twelve year old and were told it was not possible. A piece of chicken and chips for him was... More
