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.

Nice roast dinner

Had a Sunday roast here for Mother in Law's birthday. Food was great - service friendly but a little slow at times. I believe they were having connection issues with the payment machine which delayed the staff. I would go back - worth a try.

Grantchester is a quaint little village near Trumpington, Cambridge and this old world pub does really good food. We paid £18 for the special which was sea bass. It had a walnut crust on it and it was on a bed of mashed potato with lemon balm in it. You can walk to the river near here. Very pretty (and... More

Went to the Green Man in Grantchester and had some mussels done the traditional way with white wine sauce. The mussels were great, sauce was awesome and the bread that came with them was brill. The pub is inviting, friendly and warm and with good food, what more do you want.

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...
