Visited as a large party following a tour of the cathedral. We were seated in a separate long narrow room at the rear of the pub on one very long table which made movements difficult. Basic lunch menu of sandwiches and chips was good. Served its purpose.

I booked the Private Dining Room for a party for 20 of my friends during December for our annual Christmas together. We could have not had a better night - from the moment we got there, the team were very attentive and had everything ready for us. The room looked gorgeous, my friends were most impressed with my choice of... More

We were a large group having the Christmas menu in the upstairs dining room, which is stylish and comfortable. The table looked very festive lit by candles in huge silver candelabras along the table. The food was excellent, generous portions and the hot meals were served piping hot. The service was friendly, efficient and unobtrusive, our water carafes were constantly... More

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!

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.
