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 took my parents here for a birthday meal at the beginning of the year. Having eaten here a couple of times before I thought that our experience would be better than it actually was. When it came to ordering we were advised that they had run out of at least three choices on the menu and the staff too... More

A little slow to be seated and to take orders, otherwise a very good experience and service was friendly and helpful. Very nice food and well cooked. Two of use had flatbreads with Mediterranean veggies which were very good and flavoursome, whilst my father was delighted with his fish and chips. Lots of pub staples to choose from, but also...

First trip to The Green Man was for Xmas lunch December 2014, waiting time was over 1 hour, received food it was very tepid, on a cold plate and very glutenous. Second time, yesterday, 10th January 2015, thought maybe Xmas was an error due to huge amount of customers. Ordered Bacon/Brie/Canberry Baguette with French fries.....waited 45 mins, when it arrived,... More

We ate here after seeing the pub recommended in the Waitrose magazine, and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we walked in the staff were friendly, the place was lovely and warm, the fire lit and the food the best I've had in a very long time. Thanks to the staff for making this a special night!

After several changes over the past few years, this has now settled down to be a good place to go. They have kept the bar area so you don't have to eat but the food is very good, and obviously all cooked fresh on site.

We arrived during a busy Christmas Eve lunchtime without a reservation. The staff were helpful and soon found us a table in the restaurant. There was a short delay for food but we weren't in a hurry (this was Christmas Eve after all). The food was absolutely fine, as was the ale and service. A short walk across Grantchester Meadows...

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...

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.
