Visited three times so far. Each time tried different offerings from the menu and have not been disappointed yet. Surprisingly varied menu for such an unassuming pub, but possibly aimed at the cinema crowd (it's opposite the Everyman Cinema).

This is a really lovely pub, with a really nice atmosphere and very good food. The decor and furnishings are quirky and characterful, so it is comfortable for most people. However, in terms of accessibility it is really quite challenging for a wheelchair user. There is a 4" or just under step to get in and 2 single doors, the... More

Comfortable and cosy pub cum restaurant. Part of a small chain in Winchester the Green Man carries on where the other pubs left off. Eclectic but warm decor. Quirky touches. Friendly staff. Nice menu. Just opposite the cinema so great for a pre showing meal.

We walked along Southgate Street to the Green Man having been left with no choice but to walk out of the bistro just a few yards away where we had originally booked a table. With no prior booking, we instantly felt welcomed and at home at the Green Man. Beth greeted us and showed us up to a very comfortable... More

My friend held his engagement party here a few months ago. The back house was excellent for a large group! Really rustic and well designed. Staff were very attentive and switched on, even after 3 hours of us drinking they were still super charged until we left! Drinks are well priced and an awesome range. Thanks for looking after us!

This is a lovely pub. So warm and comfortable. The food is very good and at a reasonable price. There is a good selection of drinks for all tastes. I would recommend this bar for a good natter with friends or a catch up with family. Easy walk from the train station.

A beautiful boutique pub just out of the city center, at first I didn't expect the place to be so cosey inside until I stepped in. There were candles on every table and the open fire place was a brilliant addition. The food on the menu looked promising and I had high hopes, in which went above and beyond when... More

Nice stop on our pub crawl with a very homey and relaxing feel. It is a great place for a date or small group to go for food and drink but not the best for a large group. I recommend stopping in if in the area.

Stopped in for dinner having been to the cinema, we sat upstairs which was a pleasant surprise, wasn't expecting the setting to be as it was in a pub. The staff were helpful although given they are going for a restaurant style setting found the staff to be really casually dressed which wasn't really in keeping with the atmosphere. Large... More

Look not the most perfect spot, it's got the feel of a fashionable, grubby hipster student pub. But as a man who likes his food and has eaten burgers all over the planet and at all the fast food restaurants (including the 5 guys burger bar that's cropped up). I really enjoyed that burger. Might not be for everyone. It... More

The Green Man is so much more than a pub. It is a little enclave of hospitality; a stylish hang-out, and a great meeting place for friends, family or an intimate tete-a-tete.

At The Green Man we specialise in locally sourced produce, resulting in an array of interesting and scrumptious dishes.  All of that, coupled with lovely, bubbly staff and wonderfully welcoming service, makes The Green Man a rather special place to be.

Come and join us in our eclectic retro furnished bar. Enjoy a great choice of beers, an impressive and very well researched wine list (hic!), and our specialty cocktails, not forgetting of course our rather unique boutique spirits list.

We're just a stone's throw away (4 minutes to be precise) from the historic Winchester Cathedral, surrounded by culture, and noted as a hidden gem in the old capital of England. Not only do we have a very cool and relaxing bar area, but we also have an exquisite Edwardian style dining room, which is the perfect place for a Sunday roast or destination dinner. And if you are looking for that special venue for your forthcoming event then our Outhouse is a quirky mixture of rustic and industrial style; ideal for birthday's, afternoon tea's and specialty vintage weddings.
