“A great pub with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was within walking distance of Anstey Hall where we stayed and was reccomended by one of their staff. The food at lunchtime was very nice, the atmosphere was enhanced by the open fires. Service was friendly and prompt. The menu selection was only difficult because of its excellent choices. We also had an evening meal which was delicious.

“Excellent food in a pub atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The setting isn't fine dining, but the food was excellent. More expensive than normal pub fare but well worth it

“What a find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Went here in search of an evening meal early this week. We were almost put off by iffy reviews, but were so glad we weren't. The place is huge, yet cosy and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and efficient.
We ordered both from the specials and the main menu, and had a bottle of wine, and it was very reasonable.
The food was delicious and tasty - no room for puds though!
Admittedly it was very quiet on the evening that we went, so service was unlikely to be a problem, but we couldn't have been happier with our meal. A big thumbs up from us!

“Enjoyable evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I were staying for a week in Great Shelford and on the occasion of our wedding anniversary, chose to go to the Green Man in Trumpington, after having an afternoon drink there.
The menu isn't huge, but it is a bit "different" and also included specials of the day..
The atmosphere was warm and friendly, as was the central log fire feature.
We enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant meal, cooked as requested and a decent bottle of wine.
We also enjoyed interaction and banter with the staff.

“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Went to the green man about a week ago, previously went about two weeks before, the food & service was awful, but thought I would give it a try again, well I won't be going again, once again they had run out of certain dishes & this was at 4 pm!!! We were made to feel very uncomfortable by certain members of staff, this was do to my polite complaint the first time even though it was there mistake!!! . I have been previously & wrote a good review, but it will take me a long time to go back, which is a shame as it is a nice pub.
