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

My boyfriend and I have been here for dinner and lunch a few times, it's a beautiful little pub with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The front of house manager and her team are amazing, as are the head chef and his. It was beyond busy the last time we went and we were told straight away there would be... More

This should be one of the finest pubs in the country, sadly it feels run down, smells of fried food, is overpriced and the beer was not too good either. The setting is wonderful in the beautiful village of Grantchester, but each time we visit here hoping for some improvement we leave disappointed

Having worked here under previous owners I was interested to see how the place had changed in seven years. What a difference!!!! Amazing. Food spot on, ales well kept and service tremendous, even with at least 50 people in the back garden! I wish I worked there now rather than before. Josh, the owner is the best bloke you'll ever...

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.
