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.

Too expensive. Too cold inside. Menu doesn't cater for children very well. No chicken option for Sunday Lunch is a mistake. Roast Dinner is too fancy. The sauces for the sticky toffee pudding should be in a pot for the individual to add. Chocolate fudge cake was too big a portion, too dry, with not enough ice cream. We spilt a drink and ended wiping the table ourselves as the staff did half a job cleaning up. Disappointing overall.

The menu seems to have shrunk quite a lot. We have been frequent diners of the Red Lion and have had some very fond memories of the food here. Staff, service and ambiance remains great but we found the food this time around quite disappointing and dissatisfying. Particularly the Roast beef Sirloin which was very dry and chewy and the mushroom starter and crackers was also very dry.

The ambiance can never be as good outside as in the beautiful pub, but they did their best with a large marque and patio heaters. Service was good. Food was very nice, if a little expensive. Will certainly be back.
