Had an amazing lunch at the Red Lion in Grantchester today. The food was delicious, the surroundings delightful and the staff efficient and friendly. Would recommend this place to anyone especially if you are happy to stray from the "normal" pub lunch type menu. Can't wait to revisit. 10/10.

Restaurant full so had dinner in bar. Had fish & chips - good but not the best I've ever had. Fairly large portion of fish but small/medium portion of chips which were ok but bit anaemic.

We specifically sought out this pub as we knew it was dog friendly. The food was very good and not too expensive. Nice atmosphere especially as there was a wedding going on.

Three of us had a lovely evening walk across the Granchester meadows with the dog and dropped in to the Red Lion for a light supper before returning . A delicious chicken dish was produced promptly despite the place being busy and some water was provided for the dog! We would definitely go again.

A really lovely place for a lazy Sunday lunch, great food, helpful staff, and even the fields and river outside to walk off your lunch before you head home! Only downside is parking, but that's grantchester all over

We walked from Cambridge to Grantchester which took us an hour and 20 minutes due to taking a number of wrong turns. It was a beautiful day so we were ready for a drink and some food by the time we arrived. We sat in the beautiful gardens at the rear of the hotel and had a bottle of sauvignon... More

We came here for dinner last night and had a really lovely time. The service was prompt, polite but not stuffy or false. The food was fresh and tasty, and not over priced. Portions were generous - you would never leave hungry! We would recommend sitting outside on the decking - there are patio heaters... We will definitely be back.
