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 pub lunch

The best scotch egg I've ever had. And a delicious Caesar. It's a lovely bike trip to Granchester, and the Green Man offers a fine pub lunch.

We stopped here for lunch on a rainy afternoon - such a cosy pub. We had the sharing platter to start with which was delicious - the chorizo jam was amazing. I had the hake fillet which was served with new potatoes, spinach, olives and a salsa verde. It was delicious, would definitely recommend. Service was great, prompt and efficient... More

We spent hours sitting and talking at the Green Man - nice inside and outside seating areas. This is 1 of our favorite pubs in Cambridgeshire.

This is a gorgeous English countryside pub. It is a old building, full of character. The low ceiling makes it feel very cosy. There is a long and narrow beer garden, with lots of room for groups to enjoy food and drinks. The staff are friendly and helpful. A lovely place to while away an afternoon!

A great place to stop on a bike ride, we rode from the centre of Cambridge to Grantchester, it was a great sunny day so stopped at The Green Man. Great pub with an even better beer garden.

We had really good chicken sandwiches here and good beer too. The atmosphere was nice as well. Nice day outside but we stayed inside but walked out to the beer garden later and it looked really nice.

We visited this pub on Sunday 1st June. This lovely pub is adjacent to The Red Lion, pub /restaurant and Granchester Meadows but looks more traditional and inviting. We made the right choice. It is Cask Marque quality with tasting glasses offered for the variety of ales when we were spoilt for choice. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful despite... More

The Green Man in Grantchester has provided consistently good food every time I have visited. The staff are always polite and friendly and there is always a nice atmosphere there. I would say it is the best place to eat in Grantchester. The ales are always decent there and they have a good selection of other wines and drinks too.... More

This pub serves the best Guinness I have had for a very long time and I have drunk Guinness at hundreds of pubs. The fish and chips were to die for for, the fish was soft and creamy, the batter was crisp, tasty and not fatty. The staff were helpful and friendly, really made you feel welcome. We will definitely... More
