We all loved the lamb pie. It was my third pie in three weeks, all had different fillings but this was the best. My brother suggested that it was the best pie that he had ever tasted, high praise indeed. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and occasion. No doubt will return for more pie tasting. .

We visited the Red Lion at Hinxton twice in 4 days. The food was exceptional. I had the Pie of the day both times as it was out of this world. Easily the best pie I’ve ever had. The service was efficient and friendly and the setting is just sublime. A stunning, charming village with bags of character.

A friend and I had a lovely Greek salad and a good natter. The atmosphere was lacking as nobody else was in but I’m sure folk will soon get back to coming out. I always love the Red Lion !

Had a lovely meal here on Friday evening. Good variety of options on the menu - reason to return and try something different next time. I had steak and ale pie with chips and seasonal veg, followed by a delicious sticky toffee pudding and vanilla ice cream. The tables were well separated so I felt comfortably distanced from the other diners. The service was prompt and friendly. Easy to book a table online. Can't think of any negatives.

Yet another fabulous piece of fresh fish with accompanying chips and also a very flavoursome Venison Casserole. Keep up the great food and service which is greatly appreciated at this challenging time. Looking forward to our Sunday roasts later today.

We were supposed to be away at a hotel for Christmas but it got cancelled and we treated ourselves to a meal at the Red Lion, Hinxton. It was wonderful in every way. My sons are still raving about the steak and ale pie which they said was the best they had ever eaten! Friendly attentive service, relaxed and comfortable surroundings and excellent food - what more could you ask?

Very pleasant stay, delightful room and meal. Do visit the pub and village, and take a stroll to the mill (dating from 1086). It’s sad that Covid is forcing so many to stay at home.

This was our first visit to the Red Lion, having discovered it in our Good Pub Food Guide as one of the ‘Pick of the Pubs’ and wanting to have our first meal out since Covid. Firstly we felt very safe at the Red Lion and as such would encourage people to visit now it’s possible to do so, pubs and restaurants like the Red Lion really need support. The food was very good and the service to match, ambience wasn’t great but the restaurant was quiet so perfectly understandable under the circumstances. We’ll definitely be back and would certainly recommend the Red Lion.

The Sunday lunch was tasty and the atmosphere was cheery and refreshing, enabling all of us to feel human again, not trapped. Staff were attentive and thoughtful. The only small disappointment was the unavailability of gf dessert. That would have been an exceptional treat, but we were assured that it would be available in the future. Thank you for keeping me in touch.
