About us

A beer house since 1836, the Red Lion continues to embrace its grain led origins, recently winning Cambridge CAMRA’s pub of the year award. Throw in a freshly cooked pub menu, four modern en-suite bedrooms, a cracking annual beer festival, pub teams galore (petanque, darts, crib) and a huge helping of community spirit and you’ll begin to see a little of what we’re about!

Tucked away on the outskirts of Cambridge and proudly located in the ever-growing town of Histon, we offer a great spot to drink, eat or stay regardless of the time of day or year!.

Would be a great pub if they didn't have table booking was okay during covid but that was ages ago. I have been drinking there for five years but sorry had enough!

Always the choice after work. Could never complain. Recommend the beer festival as well. Also a good place for football viewing during international tournaments (if England are any good).

Really enjoyed our evening at the Red Lion last night. We are not from the area and the owner of the Airbnb where we were staying recommended this pub. Glad she did as the food was delicious and the atmosphere was fab. Live music, plenty of selection for food/drinks and all the staff were really welcoming and friendly.

Great pub in a lovely village. I stayed overnight. Good, clean accommodation. The room was comfy with plenty of space and a large bathroom. Staff were polite and helpful. Food was good too. All reasonably priced.

I came up to Histon to meet friends and went to the beer festival a few weeks ago. What a brilliant place! Good service , good food and a good selection of interesting beers. I’d like to come back on an evening where there isn’t an event on as I think it would be a perfect winter pub!
