Very regular diners at the Red Lion. Friendly young staff, who remember us every time, which is always positive. Impressive wine list. Menu is always good, thoroughly recommend the Beef Burger, great value and tastes amazing. Lovely interior, toilets always immaculate. Would recommend to anyone!

Second visit to this pub in Grantchester, not an overwhelming success. Staff friendly and efficient in fixing things. Busy with families. However there is no excuse for serving bottled beer beyond it's use by date, for not serving meals with an the item missing (Yorkshire pud). Roast potatoes not crispy and the roast sirloin distinctly average both in quantity and... More

We needed somewhere to meet a friend visiting Cambridge so picked the Red Lion at random. Lovely food...not cheap but plenty of it and excellent service from the staff. Teapot was refilled, tables were cleared of used glasses etc quickly. Atmosphere friendly, bar area, where we ate, was spacious and warm. Plenty of car parking and a very pretty pub... More

Enjoyed a mid-week meal here with a friend, good quality food well cooked, but £75 plus tip for three courses seemed quite a lot when neither of us were drinking! What we had was good, but a starter plank of sliced meats salami etc was £15 and although we didn't have it I noticed chateaubriand was £55 for two people.... More

Amazing food and service in a spacious and atmospheric pub with wood burning stoves. We were offered the private dining room (called the Reading Room) which made the lunch incredibly special and unique. Would go back many times!

Twice I have been on a weekend for food and twice I've left after giving up still hungry. Very poor service, surprising because there is enough staff, delays in the kitchen, asked 4 people (including manageress) for a table, dismissed by all, before giving up after finishing our drinks. It may be nice during a weekday, but avoid any other... More

We chose the Red Lion for its garden and reputation for good food - we should have realised our mistake when the bar staff couldn't be bothered to take our order, told us the hot drinks machine was broken (no kettle, apparently) and subjected us to a 35 minute wait for three ploughmans and a salad, despite the pub being...

The food was great, but the service really let the place down. Some maturity amongst the staff might be useful. But if you have time, the food was very good.
