This has been a great pub with a very good restaurant for many years. This evening, for the first time, we tried a takeaway supper. Everything worked as it should from booking to collection - ready on time and hot. Excellent food and decent sized too. Thank you.

We had booked the Red Lion with a view to making a booking for my husband's 80th birthday in June. The pie filling was very tasty; tender meat and good gravy. Fresh vegetables were carefully cooked. Service was relaxed yet attentive. We have requested a reservation for the party in June!

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.

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.

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?
