About The Red Lion

Set in the beautiful Village of Granchester, which Rupert Brook famously spoke of in “The Old Vicarage, Granchester” our stunning and eclectic building lays! Just a 2 minute walk from Granchester meadows and the river Cam, we are ideally situated for a wonderful freshly prepared meal or even just a pint of locally sourced Ale or glass of specially selected wine.

We are open from 10am until 12pm for Brunch and then serve throughout the day until 10pm and 9pm on a Sunday. We also have a great bar snack menu if you just want to kick back and relax in the bar. Dogs are welcome in our front garden and bar area so you can bring you furry friends along too! We have a large beer and dining garden with a beautiful patio and decking area for BBQ’s, functions and celebrations such as weddings or Birthdays or a beautiful private dining room that can hold up to 12 people for that extra special experience.

Children are always welcome and can play in our play area at the back of the garden. We all look forward to welcoming you.


Our food takes inspiration from the best of British and is very tasty! Everything is seasonal to bring only the freshest ingredients. Almost all items are made from scratch by our lovely Chefs and we take great pride in delivering the perfect plate. We have a great children’s menu and some super bar snacks to enjoy from our quirky ‘Beetroot pickled Egg’ to Our ‘British meat board.’ Our famous Sunday roasts fly out of the door so you need to be quick! We have purple Carrots!


Our totally amazing wine list is compiled of some truly great wines to suit all tastes and features everything from our cost effective Old Vines Garnacha, Tierra Roja from Carinena Spain to our luxurious Puligny- Montrachet, Domain Miolane, from Burgandy France.

We are always ready to let you taste a little drop to broaden your wine horizons and we are happy to help match it to the perfect dish. We also offer some superb guest Ales which are always changing to bring something new to the table as well as some trendy bottles such as Camden Brewery Hells lager.
