“Lovely”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Came here on a Sunday lunchtime, service was great, the pub has a nice atmosphere to it, we all enjoyed our food, I had a burger, beautifully cooked and tasted amazing, liked the touch of putting the chips into a bucket and being served on a board, desserts were nice too.

“Harborne Pubs”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Whilst its not as 'trendy' as the Plough (opposite), its a dam sight cheaper for the same beer, and theres a disco. Staff were friendly not at all pretentious

“Poor”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I have visited The Green Man many times. This pub has recently been re-furnished and looks very nice. My last visit was yesterday lunchtime and as I was in between appointments at the QE I thought it would be nice to have a lunch break there. We looked at the menu and thought the pea and mint soup with a swirl of cream sounded inviting. Alas, when it arrived it looked flat, there was no swirl of cream and upon the first taste it was tepid. As we were in between appointments we did not have time to complain so I waited for the overly loud and self important waitress to collect our dishes and when she asked if we enjoyed it I then said no, we were disappointed and made my complaint. Her reply was...oh.
Don't think we will be eating there again.

“Disticntly Average”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The green man is a great location for a casual drink with a few friends, the prices are very reasonable when compared to the rest of the High Street which does help. However since they have changed the menu it has tried to go a little more upmarket and now doesn't quite fit. It will never compete with the better pubs and so should focus on simple, homely food. But unfortunately its mass produced, microwave heated and often don't have full range.
