About 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 in the 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.

We are open from 10am for drinks and 11:30am for food, serving throughout the day until 10pm (9pm on Sundays). We also have a great bar snack menu if you just want to nibble on something with your pint.

Muddy boots and dogs are both welcome so bring the mutt and settle in next to the fire. On sunny days grab a deck chair in our lovely garden where we have table service on the terrace. Families are always welcome too as kids can enjoy our play park at the back of the garden.


Our food takes inspiration from the best of British. Everything is seasonal so as to bring only the freshest ingredients into our kitchen, with almost everything made in-house.

Autumn is here, and with that we bring the belly warmers in the form of delicious pies, sumptuous stews and seasonal, local ales. Just perfect for settling back by our open fires.

For children there’s a yummy choice of snacks, stuffers and scrumptious puddings just for them.

On Sundays our famous roasts fly out the door, so please do book ahead.


Drink is what it’s about! From ever changing local ales and ciders to batch distilled artisan spirits and eclectic bio-dynamic wines. We are also well known for our fabulous concoctions of soft drinks for anyone on a detox.
