Red Lion Inn - Hinxton

35 High Street, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, CB10 1QY
An award-winning pub and restaurant partly dating back to the 16th century.

Expect exposed beams, comfortable sofas & open fires in cooler months.

Eat in the Bar for good sandwiches + dishes such as 'Chicken & Mushroom Pie'; 'Beer-Battered Fish & Chips' and 'Honey & Mustard Glaze Suffolk Ham with Free-Range Eggs & Chips'; or more lavishly in their dedicated restaurant.

Here, their short carte changes with the seasons, an autumn version listing 'Braised Oxtail Wrapped in Savoy Cabbage with Parsnip Purée, Baby Vegetables & Truffled Veal Jus'; 'Marinated Scallops with New Potatoes, Pickled Apple, Jerusalem Artichoke Purée with Mustard Dressed Mâche' and 'Fresh Devon Crab Risotto with Lemongrass & Lime Sorbet' amongst the half dozen, or so, starters.

Mains included 'Pan-Fried Halibut with Pommes Mousseline, Five Bean Cassoulet, Pea Purée, Lemon Oil, Quail Eggs & Herb Salad'; 'Couscous Stuffed Pheasant with Smoked Steaky Bacon, Sweet Potato Purée, Aavoy Cabbage & Redcurrant Jus'; 'Mille-Feuille of Baby Leeks with Pommes Purée, Steamed Spinach, Quail Eggs, Tomato & Dill Butter Sauce'and 'Deconstructed Veal Wellington with Braised Oxtail Faggots, Smoked Duck Liver Paté, Baby Vegetables & Veal Jus'.

A selection of classy puds list the likes of 'Hot Raspberry Soufflé with Raspberry Sorbet, White Chocolate Soup & Fresh Fruits' and 'Chocolate Trio - mini fondant, chocolate orange velvet torte & cheesecake brownie - with crème anglaise & pistachio dust'.

If you plan ahead, you can stay in one of their eight comfortable bedrooms.
