“Wow”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I booked into the green man after reading reviews on trip adviser I went with my wife and three teenage children to begin with when entering the hotel the staff were very polite and friendly the rooms outstanding the three boys shared a room number 8 while we had the room next door number 9 which is great for smokers because there is a small outside balcony the rooms are very large and the bathrooms fantastic the beds very comfortable I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this one is hard to beat In fact I could not find a problem with it if I am around this area again it will be the first place I book

We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room (10) was very large with two huge sofas and a small balcony to soak up the evening sun. The bed was a bit soft for my taste but that's probably just me. The bathroom was very large with a double sink and a huge and lovely walk in shower, although if you want a bath you will be disappointed! Fresh milk for the room was an added bonus:) The hotel itself is lovely with lots of exposed beams and a small but comfy lounge area. Breakfast was a real treat, freshly cooked to order. Not being a huge fan of the "full English" I really enjoyed the wild mushrooms on toast and the freshly made pancakes. The Green Man is in the village of Fownhope which has some lovely walks which you can take from the door of the pub, and then treat yourself to a Weston's cider back in the bar.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and enjoyed it although it was a little expensive. We also ate at the Royal Oak and at the Walwyn Arms in nearby Much Marcle which were both good and much more reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Room 10 has a balcony but bed is soft Room 9 has a firmer bed

We stayed here for a night in August. It is a lovely village and the Green Man is very good. Nice welcome. Good rooms. Great location, you can walk from the pub down to the river Wye which is very beautiful. There are very few seats in the bar area if you aren't eating. And we booked a table to eat in the evening. We were taken from the main bar area into a kind of ballroom which had no atmosphere and was basically an overspill room. I felt that we should have been made aware of this when we asked if they had any tables. When we sat down to eat we were told the restaurant was full but all tables were empty. So in essence the "good" tables were taken. The food was pretty good. Goats cheese starter was just a piece of uncooked cheese and the chips with the steak were soggy. The steak was great though. Throughout the stay the staff were very pleasant. We would definitely return, but make sure we booked a table to eat when we booked the room to ensure the main restaurant area.

stayed for one night in june .we were checked in at the bar by friendly barman and shown to
our room which was nicely furnished if a little small great shower though.
went down stairs for a pre dinner drink only to find all the tables in the bar were set for meals
even though the bar was empty we either had to take our drinks out to the garden or to the
table in restaurant which we had booked so this place is more a resaurant with rooms rather
than a country inn the food at dinner was superb quality as was breakfast ,drinks a bit pricey.

Love Love Love this location. They go that little extra mile for guests and to make your stay just that little bit special. The Inn fitted us in with only a moment's notice and for dinner as well. With a lovely beer garden for drinks and a dinning room that personally had my style heart captured.
The rooms were big and lovely decorated with kitsch design features and items of furniture. Bathrooms are modern with a great shower. Overall the building was very well renovated.
As usual I took a peak at the conference room and I was overcome my personal lust for a dear antler chandelier was peaked as the room had two and original wood beams.
I couldn't impress more how great our stay was. If only visiting for dinner it will be well worth it.

This was my third visit (another fishing trip) to the Greenman and as usual we received a warm welcome from the attentive lovely staff. Everything was as previous visits, great room, great food, great beer, i really can't fault this lovely country hotel. I will be back again in September if not before!

Business trip but wanted somthing differant.Quirky old inn with lavish furnishing spotless and a suberb restreraunt
staff attitude and a credit to the hotel
The only negative is the kitchen fans vent over the garden --between noise and smells this was problem--yes is was a heatwave and they need kitchen venalation but this needs sorting
Would happily stay again and certainly recommend
