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.

Visited here for a drink before we went into the next door pub the red lion for a Sunday evening meal. Wish we has stayed in the green man. The food was much more reasonably priced. The ale in the green man seemed well kepted, I had a pint of Night. Very friendly staff and welcoming. A old dark atmosphere... More

Popped in for a drink for an hour, very friendly helpful staff. The fire was burning. Very warm and cozy place. Can't comment on food, as we didn't have any, but something smelled nice.

While the staff of this pub are exceedingly friendly and welcoming, I did not enjoy my food in the slightest. I was told their fish and chips are quite good from a couple of friends, but I was fully disappointed by how greasy the fish itself was. I do intend on giving this pub another try on another occasion.

This was the second or third time we'd been to the Green Man; it's been a while though. This time was a Sunday lunch with friends. I had a game pie and my wife the pork roast. The roast was good, though it is still your basic roast dinner. That said, the red cabbage was delicious. My pie was better... More

We came here with parents on New Year's Eve for a late-ish dinner in the restaurant. Rachel, who served us, was fantastic - very knowledgeable and made us very comfortable, particularly given that it was New Year's Eve and we had ordered our food close to the kitchen closing time of 9pm. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced -... More

Delicious soup, parsnip and peat, lovely bread, warm feeling in the pub, cosy and friendly. Quintessentially British. Friend had a baguette and chips, all perfect after a long walk with the dogs of the meadows, delicious, highly recommended.

Popped with my girlfriend for a lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Pub was quite busy but our food arrived reasonably fast. We had mulled wine, roasted carrot and parsnip soup, steak, ale and mushroom pie, fish cakes with salad, fries and chocolate brownie. All three courses were very tasty and we were extremely happy with service. We enjoyed food in... More

Having discovered that the other two pubs in the village were not serving food at 7pm on a Sunday evening we arrived at the green man. Great local pub (wish we had an equivalent in our village in Hertfordshire), good beer, and cider and a interesting menu. Food was very good, staff were efficient yet relaxed. A really pleasant evening.
