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.

I was a little nervous about eating here with friends after reading some of the previous reviews on tripadvisor. I shouldn't have worried! It is unpretentious, cosy and the staff welcoming and friendly. The food is just what pub food should be with a good choice and reasonably priced. We all enjoyed our evening and certainly didn't leave feeling hungry!... More

We come to this pub quite a lot and love the food but today one of our party's food was cold and all the pigs in blankets were cold, we also felt some of the food was under cooked and not well presented, the roast pots under cooked and parsnips cooked whole which makes them less tasty as soggy in...

After a last minute phone call to say family are in the area, calling in on the off chance we can get a meal, the food & service was wonderful, service was very good & staff were very pleasant. The food was off a very high standard, my steak & kidney pie was crammed full of meat & every main... More

Had a really good lunch here, fish and chips, home made ketchup and yummy peas all delicious. The special of pork, apple and black pudding pie was also delicious, served with creamy mash and cabbage. Service attentive and polite, atmosphere unpretentious in this age of uniform 'traditional' pubs.

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
