Great location for Cambridge and saffron walden. Nice atmosphere. Good winter stay.

Room was very spacious with a bit of luxury.

Pub and dining areas what you would expect from a nice country pub with wood burners and comfy seating. Bar food was very good but found the restaurant menu a bit too complicated with too much going on on the plate( as they say on masterchef) but the choice was very good. Had a great plate of scrambled egg for breakfast on our second morning, after finding the"full English" a bit too much. Wi Fi in our room never worked nor the remote for the TV but these were minor niggles. Overall a good stay.

Very nice room for an overnight stay - pity about the number of flies in it.

Just a bit too off-putting, so would not stay here again.

A Gem!

We visited The Old Red Lion last weekend ie 1/8/2014 having had a wonderful day at Newmarket races, followed by a concert by The Voice himself - Tom Jones.

Although we did arrive late our keys had been left for us. Very comfortable spacious room and bathroom. We stayed two nights, dinner and breakfast all of which were very good. Dinner was particularly good and our waitress Abbey was extremely efficient friendly and helpful (in fact the same can be said for all the staff but didn't get names)

Very relaxing and Treacy and Ian made us very welcome. Suggestion: The water pressure in our shower wasn't great perhaps an update!
