Red Lion  

Histon is a reasonably sized village with a picturesque green complete with hungry ducks and, more importantly, 5 pubs within a few hundred yards.

The Red Lion appears to be the pick of the bunch. There are 2 separate bars leading from a small lobby the Lounge Bar has several tables, real fire, old wooden pillars and several old advertisements and signs.

The ceiling is covered with beer pump clasp labels from the hundreds of guest beers that have passed through. There are usually 6 Real Ales, 3 Belgian beers and a Perry alongside the usual array of lager and ciders.

The quieter saloon bar had bare floors, sturdy furniture, an unobtrusive dartboard, 2 widescreen TVs, fruit machine and a juke box.

There is also a vast collection of bottles, ashtrays and pub memorabilia including the old pub sign plus more old signs and advertisements. There is a small patio outside and I understand there is a beer garden but did not see it.

There is a basic food menu but this appeared quite pricey in comparison to the drink prices. Available Monday to Saturday lunchtimes plus monthly curry nights.

It has pretty much everything you can require of a pub and a universal appeal. Well worth a visit.

Two annual beer festivals.
