Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been enjoying the hospitality of this welcoming restaurant for the past 14 years. We enjoyed a lovely crab cake and plate of smoked salmon followed by curry. My normal go to is the curry and today was no different, despite the launch of...a new menu, and they even make it less spicy and dairy free for me. Thanks to Beth and the team for another welcoming child free visit!More

Very disappointing. My friend & I both chose to have the crab fish cake starter as a main course , so we doubled the portion - 2 fish cakes instead of one. They were basically potato cakes. Neither of us could taste any crab, which...wasn’t too much to expect at £24. We also had to ask to move to another table because of the smoke from the wood burner, which the staff were trying to start. The service was indifferent. An apology might not have gone amiss for both of the above but non forthcoming. I should mention I am not in the habit of complaining. I have never written a review before - good or bad - but feel the need to do so on this occasion unfortunately.More

Probably one of the best sunday roasts I have ever eaten. I am based in Cheshire which is surrounded by fantastic pubs and food and i was down visiting my in-laws in Sussex. They booked to take us to the Green Man and I must...say the roast that we all had was a step up from the rest. I am also a massive foodie and also takes a lot to impress me. There was 5 of us in our party and both the food and service was fantastic (especially given how busy it was). The suede mash was absolutely beautiful, so much so I even called up the restaurant to try and get the recipe. Cannot wait to come back when I am next visiting.More

A spur of the moment decision to go for dinner after quite a few years which proved an excellent idea. There was nothing to fault about our evening. Friendly, well measured service from what seemed like loads of staff that meant prompt attention with no...excessive waiting. Plenty of choice on an imaginative menu with what turned out to be very generous portions. Really delicious Thai curry (better than I remembered it) and very good local venison casserole. The only disappointment of the evening was that neither of us could manage a pudding, we were so full. Very good wine list and a few well selected draught beers. What’s not to love?!More

We attended the annual Christmas Dinner Dance recently. Food, music and service were excellent as usual. My wife had Covid and the kitchen sent her meal home with me. Even the following day it was excellent.

We had Sunday lunch at the Green Man yesterday and I can honestly say it’s the best roast dinner I’ve had at a pub for many years - in fact I am struggling to think of one as good ever. We were a party of...six and three of us had starters. The duck pate was very good - could have done with one more piece of bread as there was a LOT of pate. The avocado starter was tasty but the Tiger Prawns were absolutely divine. A generous plateful cooked to perfection and so tasty. Then there were the roasts - WOW! The three males in our party all went for the Combo with beef and pork and our plates arrived absolutely piled with meat. We all asked for our beef medium rare and I can honestly say it was the tastiest cut of beef I have ever had in a pub Sunday roast. It melted in the mouth and was full of flavour. My wife had a roast halibut dish which she said was amazing. Unfortunately we were so full after two courses we couldn’t face a dessert. All of us said we were going to hole to flop on the sofa for several hours and recover. The place was totally full and I can see why we had to pay a deposit. They could fill a place twice the size easily. For a small pub they had loads of staff who were all very friendly and cheerful and who checked on us constantly without being intrusive. We don’t live locally so it may be our only visit which is a shame as I’d go back there anytime.More

This is a superb country pub. Meeting up with friends, we were astonished to find this high-end pub restaurant close to us. The atmosphere was intimate enough but still holding a bit of country pub without being ostentatious. The menu was excellent, and the food...was fantastic. Rarely do I eat steak better than my own; however, this was outstanding. CongratulationsMore

Not been for a while however our party of 8 people were again delighted with the service and the quality of the food. Between us we had multiple starters, mains and deserts. Everyone spoke highly about their particular dishes. The only slightly negative comment was...more of a personal preference for custard with the crumble whereas the only menu option was for cream or ice cream.More

Really enjoyed our lunch today as everything we selected to eat was perfect in taste and quality. We met some very nice people in the bar area which enhanced our experience. The only down side was that the overall cost was rather high, especially for...things like carves liver @£24 a portion with no additional vegetables. I think we can only use the establishment for special occasions, as £50 a head for a two course meal and a drink is not something pensioners like ourselves can really justify. All good it you can afford it. Will be back however….. when we have saved up!More
