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.

Arrived mid-evening on a Friday to be told the eating tables were all full. We opted to wait and found one before too long. Ordered fish pie (very good) and a burger (OK) along with cider and a local beer. Nice woodwork and feel to the place and the staff while busy, did their best to be polite... read more

I wrote to The Green Man to complain. I have yet to receive a reply. Speaks for itself really. Would we return? No.

I had lunch here with a friend on a Tuesday lunchtime and the pub had a good degree of character, friendly service and the lunch we had was to a good standard. I had a sausage and mayo-mustard ciabatta and my friend had the BLT ciabatta, both came with fries and a very nice baby leaf side salad and where... More

No-one seemed to be around to show us to our table when we arrived. When we were then shown to our table, we were told that because we had booked, our order would be fast-tracked, but they'd had gas problems earlier so the food would be delayed. We decided nonetheless to stay. However, the people sitting behind us who arrived... More

The Green Man is a quaint little pub in a beautiful location near the river. The staff were great and found us a table for dinner at short notice.Tasty food and a good atmosphere. Highly recommended.

My friend and I had a walk to Grantchester from Cambridge, thought would stop by having lunch before heading back. It was my first time been in The Green Man, unexpectedly the food was at excellent standard. I had fish & chips. The fish was good, batter was light and crispy. Mushy peas and chips were homemade and tasty. It’s... More

Popped in for a late lunch, we were greeted by friendly staff who helped my husband in his ale choice from there varied selection. We both chose to have the burger.....what a fantastic choice - juicy burger, amazing relish and topped with a perfect brioche bun. Food quickly arrived at our sunny garden table. Much improved from previous visits. Keep... More
