Eating and drinking at the Red Lion at Whittlesford Bridge



We offer locally sourced, contemporary, British food, cooked beautifully and simply, served in a traditional yet quirky setting. Our Head Chef, Neil Misquitta, was Head Chef at The Howard Arms in the Cotswolds, named as ‘Best Country Dining Pub of 2010’, and has worked on the QE2 amongst others. Neil uses fresh British produce, of local provenance where possible, including the finest farm-assured cuts of meat. Local suppliers include: B. Searl and Sons in nearby Sawston, Fieldgate Nurseries of Melbourn, and The Cambridge Cheese Company.

Drinks suppliers include: Bacchanalia of Cambridge, Adnams of Southwold and Matthew Clarke wines.

Diners can choose to sit in any of our dining areas and drink in the Red Lion atmosphere: whether it’s our sunlight-flooded Atrium, 13th century oak-beamed bar or in front of a real log fire.

We serve food from 7am to 10pm every day, with last orders at 9.30pm. Special dietary requirements can be catered for: just please let us know on booking. Otherwise, reservations aren’t needed for dining unless your party is for six or more.
