Beautiful country pub with an excellent selection of food and drinks. The goats cheese starter is a must! All portions are very generous so you will not go home hungry! The Chef and waiting staff are a credit to the new owners who themselves are also doing a fantastic job! Great hospitality from all. 10/10. Spot on!

BUT FINALLY they have come up trumps - we really enjoyed a delicious meal, with good wine,... More

Went for lunch here with a friend , a thursday lunchtime, service was fantastic attentive but not overbearing. Food was delicious, freshly cooked and a good plateful. Would definitely recommend this pub either for a quiet meal or a family event. Lovely experience.

We are popular with walkers, cyclists, horse riders alike who love to stop for a cold beverage and lunch and of which many clubs choose to make us their stop off point on their journeys.

The Green Man is close to excellent golf courses. We pride ourselves as an ideal place to relax for locals, diners, wedding parties, birthday parties and other gatherings. As well as offering a fantastic courtyard restaurant for a wonderful dining experience we can cater for all sizes of parties with a made to measure service to satisfy the most discerning of requirements.

The Green man hosts regular live music evenings which can be found listed on out Twitter page, Facebook and website. We welcome you to join us on these free entry nights where you can enjoy some of the best local talents singing anything from blues, jazz swing to contemporary modern music.
