Faultless

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.

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...

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

We were left stood at the bar waiting, one of my friends was on crutches so it was far from ideal! We asked... More

After a terrible meal at a local restaurant we visited the pub and were greeted by exceptional staff. We were too late to eat, but had a drink and engaged with the staff. We will be visiting for food as the service was great And the smell of steak made me very hungry. Would recommend this place for a relaxing... More
