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.

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.

Called here on our way back from a long distance trip. Had it not been for our hunger/thirst and the need for a break after driving for over three hours, we would have moved on after seeing inside - and now wished we had! The place is dark and somewhat claustrophobic, but most of all our complaints arise from the... More

Popped along on May Day bank holiday for lunch (hadn't booked) for 4 of us at 1pm only to be told the kitchen was unable to cope with demand and was closing for an hour to sort itself out. Madness....a sunny bank holiday and they can't cope with extra customers, someone is in the wrong business. Perfect setting for a... More

After reserving a table we arrived to find our table was next to the back door and toilets. We asked if we could sit outside, they agreed to this, but the staff member was rude in her response. After a 40 minute wait for our food, it arrived reasonably presentable, but not hot. The chunky chips were undercooked and the... More

Ate lunch at this pub today. Having ordered two pies at£13.50 and a Cambridge burger we waited with keen anticipation for our meal. We became aware that our fellow diners were less than happy. One table had left most of their food, another complained about the portion size of their mussels and our neighbours had been waiting 45 mins for... More
