We had lovely fish and chips at the Green man, excellent, but pudding came with nuts and there was nothing on the menu to suggest it contained nuts, I have called and they have assured me that they have amended this but with a husband with a nut allergy I am slightly worried about going back. Have spoken to them... More

Fabulous roast beef, in fact best I've ever had in a pub. Everything I could wish for was on my plate and all cooked to perfection.

A group of 7 of us went for Sunday lunch today. 5 of us had the roast beef and it was one of the best I have ever tasted - lovely and tender and cooked perfectly. There were about 7 different types of vegetables all delicious. Excellent service. This is the second time that we have had sunday lunch there... More

We went for Saturday lunch with the family and our two dogs. Dogs are only allowed in the bar area which is fine other than the fact it is tiny!! They've packed in the tables and customers have to walk through this area to reach the toilets and the beer garden, so there is a lot of foot traffic back... More

I visited The Green Man and was very impressed by the beer quality. All of the real ales that I tried, were in great condition. The staff were very friendly.

Met up with old friends at the place we went to on our wedding day 42 yrs ago!. Fairly chilly night and the restaurant area needed heating. Food pretty good except for the ''Coffee burnt cream' which they must be congratulated on as being the worst I've ever tasted. Despite costing almost 7 quid and my telling them this, there... More

We had a lovely "pub" lunch at the Green Man and the service was quite good. Our meal was simple -- Tomato Basil Soup and the Crispy Duck salad -- but the food was quite delicious -- and not what you think English pub food is. We could have eaten outside in the garden but the weather was a bit... More

Our main meal took an hour to arrive, was tepid and was disappointing both in appearance and taste. We could not understand why the lump of mushy peas served with our fish was brown. We waited for at least half an hour after finishing for the waitress to clear our plates and take our order for dessert, but she did... More

This is our second visit and service was appalling, we made an order and about two minutes later friends of ours arrived and put in their order. 30 minutes later their food arrived but not ours and we had to chase it up. Eventually another 15 minutes later our food arrived. I had a chicken salad which was uninspiring. Overall... More

We visited for an evening meal and were pleased with the ambience, service and range of food. However my wife 'pie of the day' was set in a very hard outer crust, so firm that I had to help her break into it .A complaint brought a different dish and no charge was made, so they did their best to...

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.
