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 Grantchester, our picture perfect, thatch roofed pub is a 2 minute walk from The Grantchester Meadows and a lovely 20 minute stroll along The Cam from Cambridge.

We are open from 10am for drinks and 12 noon 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, settle in next to the fire, and enjoy our winter walkers menu, while your mutt enjoys complimentary treats and towel to dry them off.

We love a party, and have all the space needed for a big corporate bash, celebration or wedding, while for a smaller get- together with friends or business meeting use our intimate private dining room, seating 12 comfortably.  Let our team take the hassle out of planning your event. Get in touch now to discuss your requirements.


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.

Winter is upon us, 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.

Welly boots and muddy paws welcome, check out our Walkers winter menu for light bites and tummy fillers, even treats for mans best friend.

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.
