Checking in was a breeze, parking no problem at all. The room was immaculate, warm and well appointed, and the meals in the main bar were of a high culinary standard. The beds were comfortable with a good number of pillows and terrific bedding, and noticed no road or street noise, even though there was a large party in the... More

I just stayed at the Old Red Lion Inn for 4 nights while up in the area for business. One of our offices in Haverhill and the accommodation choices near by are slim at best. The Inn was recommended to us by a colleague and I'm so glad it was! Firstly, the place is charming. It is well maintained- everything... More

We stayed in a very lovely room at the Old Red Lion Inn after a day in Cambridge. Top marks for cleanliness, and facilities. Our room had a very comfortable king size bed, good size television, fresh coffee, and good selection of teas. Comfortable night's sleep and a good breakfast, although this isn't included in the price of the room.

I would highly recommend the Old Red Lion Inn and will definitely return. Very good service and many thanks to Tracey, Emily and Ian for making us feel so welcome. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Restaurant food is very tasty indeed and we enjoyed both evening meals.

Stopped here in the motorhome, excellent evening meal. Very good quality meal and a lovely rioja crianza. Dog friendly and good busy atmosphere. Car park is on a considerable slope so good ramps needed if parking a motorhome.

We booked this accommodation for its proximity to IWM Duxford so we could attend the airshow and it was very convenient for travel to there and also to visit Cambridge using the park and ride service the following day.

We're very lucky to have the Old Red Lion as our local pub, we've eaten there many times and and will definitely be eating there again. The food is always of a great quality, the service is great and the atmosphere is lovely! Can't recommend this place enough!
