“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Arrived with my husband and our daughter to a friendly courteous welcome, everything just kept getting better from that point on. The Rooms were clean and very well set out while staying true to the six hundred year old building. All the staff were helpful, the food was fantastic, we enjoyed our first night so much that we stayed another night. I am telling all my friends in Australia about this experience.

Room Tip: Always ask to view the room before accepting it.

We had a fantastic meal here for my mum's birthday and I'll definately be going back again. The food was really nice, well presented and decent portions sizes - can fit 3 courses in without struggling to finish or being left too hungry at the end. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. The Green Man inn is split into a bar, sit down restaurant and an area with sofas and arm chairs where we retired to for a coffee at the end of our meal.
I'd recommend a visit to anyone who happens to be in the area.

We stayed here for just a night and were surprised and delighted. Good food, rooms recently done up, plenty of hot water, and friendly people. All that with real ale and a good wine list. I wish it were closer.

I selected this inn after some research on the internet. The photos and the menus looked to be the sort of thing I was after for a weekend break. I was not at all disappointed. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and well appointed and the bathroom had a great shower. A brighter shaving light might have been useful, but that's just being picky since my nose is still where it was the previous morning [luckily]. The restaurant was spacious with a very good atmosphere. The menu gave us a choice dilemma, but the smoked duck salad and steaks which we selected were really good. I especially liked the realistic mark up on the interesting wine list. Some of the bin ends were offered at less than 100% mark up. I have already recommended this place to friends and intend to make a repeat visit.

On a canoeing trip down the river Wye, we stopped over in Fownhope and stumbled across this fantastic place. The service was very friendly and very attentive and the food was superb. Not only that, but the landlord Felipe, took the time to talk to customers and share his recommendations for some less well known Brandy with us, which turned out to be really good and finished off the delicious and well priced meal perfectly. If I am in the area again I will make sure we eat here again. The old place is full of character and the beer was equally well kept.

We arrived after a 12-mile walk along the Wye Valley and must have made quite an appearance. The staff was quite welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious, clean and modern. In addition to the bar and the dining areas there was a comfortable common area and a pleasant garden area behind. Service and selection in the bar and the restaurant were excellent. The food was outstanding. There was a sizable wedding party in the night we stayed, but it did not to impact the high quality of service we received.

This place is amazing. Fantastic location so pretty, you walk in to a wonderful scent from candles. The service is exceptional and the rooms beautiful. We have been twice now and enjoy every minute. The food in the restaurant in the evening was absoloutly delicious.
A must for a romantic weekend, relaxing, comfortable yet modern setting. Can't find anything negative
