Great steaks and lovely atmosphere

This is an oldie worldie hunting style establishment just oozing in character. We found the Green Man via Tripadvisor as we wanted somewhere to eat near Newmarket – the main reason we booked here was due to the owner’s comments on a negative review in June…..

We went for Sunday Lunch. Here they used to have a Carvery but now you order and it is brought ready plated to your table. Both had Roast Beef which was quite fatty, the roast potatoes were overcooked, and the carrots were under done. Gravy, cauliflower cheese and green beans were good and the Yorkshire pudding was average. Service was... More

Food was excellent, service friendly and fast. Atmosphere was relaxed and clearly a popular local pub.

Had a lovely sunday carvery in this excellent countrysports pub. There are lots of shooting and hunting related memorabilia to look at while you wait for your meal and some excellent taxidermy items, if your a country sports person like myself and my partner this pub will suit you right down to the ground. The meal was lovely, the carrots... More

Stopped here a few months ago to have a steak that is acclaimed the best around, the steak didn't seem to be of great quality, and bizarrely came on a sizzling platter so had no time to rest, the mushrooms were barely cooked and the chips bought in frozen type, not cheap but I wouldn't have minded if the quality...

I've had a few meals in this restaurant but this must rank as the best. The steak was cooked to perfection and the chips were superb. Pleasant, friendly staff and great surroundings. Lots of stuffed birds and animals to see in the pub. I would certainly be visiting again.

Was encouraged to dine at the green man by a friend and so glad I took his advice! He was definitely right when he said the steaks were the best he's ever eaten. Go for a 12oz sirloin with peppercorn sauce and you will not be disappointed! Chips are out of this world too. It wasn't the cheapest of places... More

Travelled out of town to this pub which was rated by a few people as the best place around for steak. Duly ordered steaks and consumed them! Service was good but steaks were average and bit watery. Chef popped out to see us because he didn't like the feedback and claimed the water was butter off the mushrooms. Possible, but... More

Well worth a visit, best steak I've ever eaten. Went there on Valentine's Day and the food was really nice and cooked to perfection:
