Francesca and Guy 30/11/2013"Our wedding was arranged with a month’s notice and the staff went above and beyond to give us our special day. Laura was always on hand to offer advice and assistance and I can honestly say that no where would of matched the high standard of service that we received at the Red Lion in Whittlesford Bridge. We opted for the buffet over a sit down meal and the choice of food was fantastic. All the guests commented on how nice the food was and also how relaxed the environment was. The staff were on hand 24/7 to cater to the needs of everyone at the reception. An amazing Restaurant run by amazing staff!"
