Have been coming here for years. Grantchester is an idyllic village and this is at its heart. Lovely atmosphere and good food. It's got a large garden at the rear, but I prefer sitting on the benches at the front to watch the world go by. Only minor point is the service can be a tad erratic, but has improved... More

We visited The Green Man for the first time for food this week. Having always visited during university days and weekends for a G&T, it was great to sample their menu. Despite it being a hot summer's day, we all chose to have pies: the steak pie was filled with meat and topped with homemade shortcrust pastry, much better than... More

Popped in for lunch and thought it was quite good. I had the pork and black pudding sausage roll and it was pretty good, as was my wife's fish cake (but it needed a bit more seasoning). Prices a little high. Garden was pretty tatty and in need of a makeover, as were the toilets.

Terrible pub - shabby and filthy garden set-up walking out of the pub through garages. Food was just awful. We were visiting Cambridge and guide book said Grantchester was worth a visit as a honeypot village? Far from it!

It is located at the fork of the road at the center of. The village if good location for drinks especially on a warm day. Parking might be an issue as. I have not seen any dedicated parking spaces.

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.
