Found on Station Road in the idyllic Cambridgeshire village of Whittlesford, The Red Lion at Whittlesford Bridge is a delightful setting that provides a fabulous escape from those everyday trials and tribulations.
Whether staying in one of their cosy bedrooms, or just looking to partake in some of the sumptuous fare served in their on-site AA Rosette awarded restaurant, a warm welcome is extended to all who enter the scenic 13th century coaching inn.
The invitation is extended to tastecard members, who are able to enjoy any of the dishes served on the a la carte menu with a fantastic discount, provided they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival. Beginning with one of the exquisite starters, such as the gratifying corned beef hash, the flavoursome red, yellow & candied beetroots, and the scrumptious smoked haddock fish cakes, diners are sure to be enchanted from the very first bite.
Next up, the mouth-watering mains leave very little to be desired, with a fine ensemble of divine options available that promise to meet any appetite. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the tender 8oz chargrilled beef burger, topped with gem lettuce, beef tomato & pickle and accompanied by hand cut chips, the glorious harissa breaded hake, served with a fragrant lemon and red onion couscous, and the amiable wild mushroom risotto, which comes complete with Parmesan and basil.
Considering the superb savings, visitors are encouraged to conclude the feast in style with one of the delicious desserts, where a heavenly warm chocolate brownie is wonderfully contrasted by a sharp yet sweet lemon meringue tart, before dipping into the pocket in the enjoyment of a tipple or two from the extensive drinks list.
