The Red Lion Hinxton

The Red Lion Inn - country pub, restaurant and bed & breakfast accommodation in Hinxton on the Cambridge Essex border.

Welcome to the multi award-winning Red Lion Inn, a privately owned free house pub restaurant with bed & breakfast accommodation that has resided at the heart of the pretty conservation village of Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, since the 16th Century.

This historic, Grade II listed building provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying fabulous food and drink, in the company of friends, family and colleagues. Exposed beams, well stoked fires and Chesterfield sofas invite you to stay a while and relax, while an impressive oak, dry peg extension is an elegant, spacious room in which to dine.

The menu comprises contemporary and traditional dishes, created with culinary flair and using only the freshest, locally sourced seasonal produce.

In the warmer months, the inn’s quintessentially English, Cambridge walled garden is a tranquil setting in which to eat, drink and socialise under the watchful gaze of the dovecote and village church clock tower.

Eight guest rooms have been sympathetically built within the grounds of the inn, to exacting standards. Inside, they present luxury and comfort; all are double en suite with no compromise on quality or

facilities (including direct dial telephone and ethernet/wireless internet access).

Here at The Red Lion, we are proud that we continue to retain our listing in The Good Food Guide, Good Pub Guide, Good Beer Guide and Near the Motorways. We are also pleased to be included in the exclusive Alastair Sawday publications, as well as having been awarded 4 AA Stars for our accommodation and an AA Rosette for our food. All these accreditations are based purely on merit and are therefore a tremendous credit to all involved.

We are reliant on feedback from our customers to ensure that future visits are even more enjoyable. You can do this by filling out the form on our contact page - we'd be delighted to hear from you (and we will enter you into the monthly draw).

You can be sure of a very warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere at The Red Lion Inn, whether you are looking for a traditional pub restaurant meal, a quiet drink or bed & breakfast accommodation.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
