Welcome to The Lion Hotel

May I extend the warmest of welcomes to The Lion at Buckden, Cambridgeshire, one of the oldest coaching inns in England. Dating back to 1492, we continue to retain much of our wonderful charm, character and atmosphere.

Whether you are looking for a quiet drink with friends, a Sunday lunch with the family or a place to rest your weary legs  My team and I would be delighted to welcome you. You can rest assured your time at The Lion, however long, will be very enjoyable.

Located in the heart of Cambridgeshire, Buckden is a small village just off the A1 giving you excellent access to London and The North not to mention all the local places of interest including the historic Buckden Towers.

If you are dining or staying with us, I recommend a reservation however this is not a requirement so please feel free to drop in at any time for a bite to eat, a place to stay or just a refreshing drink.


I look forward to seeing you soon.

Kevan Potter

General Manager.
