Using locally sourced food cooked beautifully and simply we provide eating, drinking and lodgings in a traditional yet quirky setting. We are 'All things to all people' Parts of our building date back to the 13th Century when Carmelite monks carved the oak beams which are still in place today. We have plenty of nooks and crannies, low ceilings and wonky floors all of which sit comfortably alongside a 21st Century glass atrium and business centre featuring new audio-visual technology , The Red Lion offers complimentary on-site car parking and free Wi-Fi throughout the property. We have 91 individually designed bedrooms with swooshy showers, Hypnos beds, down and feather bedding, flat screen TV's and IPod docking stations. rooms vary in size to executive single through to an impressive honeymoon room. Weddings and gatherings of all sorts can be accommodated at the Red Lion, our rooms offer flexible layouts from corporate parties to boardroom-style director meetings. These light and beautifully designed rooms with several break-out options can seat up to 140 guests. In the summer months, enjoy local ales, Belvoir cordials and excellent British cooking in our Atrium or oak-beamed bar, whilst in the winter you can make yourself at home in front of a real log fire or curl up on a couch in the snug area. Throughout it's 700 years of history, The Red Lion has been a haven of welcoming hospitality. From providing a place of respite to destitute travellers in the 1200's, through to cementing its place in royal circles as King James I granted the Red Lion's first liquor licence. In recent times, it became the social hub for service men and women stationed at nearby Duxford Airfield. Now after extensive investment and refurbishment the Red Lion continues to open it's doors to welcome in the contemporary traveller and local community.
