Cuisines: British, Pub, Gastropub
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Reservations, Late Night
Description: Tucked away deep within the Cambridgeshire countryside, The Green Man champions time-honoured British fare from a trusty menu. Tender beef cheek croquette and braised ox tongue matched with mature Suffolk blue cheese, heritage tomatoes and colourful nasturtium leads the light bites on The Green Man menu, while tenderloin, belly and head of pork slow-cooked in cider steers the main courses. Enjoy a golden cask ale or cider in the sprawling beer garden, or keep warm inside with the cosy woodburner and squashy armchairs.

Popped out for a late evening meal. The Green Man in Grantchester is located close to another large pub but easily beats it for quality and service. Two excellent meals and a dessert and we were more than satisfied. The chips were probably the best I've eaten. Large, hand-cut chips that were properly cooked all the way through but not... More

This is something of a local for us, a short evening bike ride away. Previously we´ve had some lovely meals here but on our last visit we only wanted a portion of chips!!!!! After a 45 min wait we questioned where they were. Not surprisingly a portion of chips promptly arrived. Sadly these were stone cold. When we complained we... More

We did really love the food & service here, but when we visited last week, we were hugely disappointed. The service was cold & dismissive. No napkins given with cutlery ( no cutlery given for one course!) glasses were rather dirty, no check back, and when we and others in the restaurant asked when our food would arrive (it was... More

On a perfect summer Sunday we arrived at the Green Man for lunch only to be told that because they had "just had a party of 16 turn up without reservations" they couldn't take any more food orders for 30 minutes. 30 minutes maximum? Yes, they said, irritatedly. OK. Time for a pre-prandial pint and anticipation of a sunday roast.... More

We came here on a quiet Sunday evening after a long day moving house. It's a quiet and unpretentious place, with a nice decor and a very cosy atmosphere. We're all vegetarians, and there was a decent, if not extensive range of non-meat dishes. In the end we tried the nut roast and the gnocchi, both of which were very... More

We came at 4pm on a Sunday hoping to catch a late Sunday roast. We did not even consider the price, we were just glad we got the last two roast beefs. Two meals and two drinks (one was a soft drink) came to £35! Its not that often that I do a double take on price but this was... More

We were greeted in a friendly manner even when the drink order was lost in translation, but the meal was very delicious, we had the pork belly. Would recommend.

We always enjoy a visit to The Green Man but never understand why the staff seem so unfriendly! You walk in and there is a lovely bustling atmosphere and we have always found a nice table and been served immediately and enjoyed our late lunches, but always feel as though the staff do not want us to be here. We... More

We've been twice recently. Once for an evening meal in the restaurant and today for lunch in the garden. Everyone enjoyed both times! The interior could do with some TLC, but the food is good and uses fresh ingredients. The service was fine and the food arrived quickly (even during a fairly busy Saturday lunch). Definitely better food than the... More

Had a decent business lunch here with efficient service tailored to the need to meet and eat within a reasonable timeframe. My guest and I both had the haddock - very tasty and so large it was nearly falling off the plate at either end! Charming pub interior: classic English pub. Would definitely visit again.
