The Red Lion

Welcome to The Red Lion

We are at our heart, a pub. This is a place where you can stop for a while, eat delicious food and drink and soak up the home away from home atmosphere. Set in the beautiful village of Granchester, our picture-perfect, thatch-roofed pub is a 2-minute walk from The Granchester Meadows and a lovely 20-minute stroll along The Cam from Cambridge.

The Pub

Set in the scenic village of Grantchester, our beautiful thatched roof pub is at the heart of the community. A stone's throw away from Grantchester Meadows and a peaceful 20-minute stroll along the river Cam into the university town of Cambridge.

We are a quintessential British pub, providing outstanding hospitality and delighting our guests serving the best of fresh seasonal food, fine wines and award-winning ales.        

We encourage you to bring along your four-legged friends, wear your muddy boots and curl up in front of our roaring fires.
