“Excellent pub food and friendly staff.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Ate at the Green Man last night (Tuesday), very quiet due to it being a Tuesday eve but what a great dining experience.
Great table in the window by the bar and the food was simply excellent. Great choice of really tasty menu items and everything including the deserts were fabulous. Ice cream variation of flavours were a great change from the usual choc strawb and vanilla etc....

Also the staff were pleasant and friendly and made it a really enjoyable dining experience even the kids got looked after well. We will be back.

“Very lovely dog friendly pub with great food!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Went as a group of four with two dogs on a Sunday afternoon, we had just walked the dogs and were looking for some lunch.

We walked in and received a warm welcome, there was live music playing and a very nice ambiance without it being too busy.

We easily found a table in the bar (dogs allowed in the bar) and were served in good time.

They waitress brought us a bowl of water for the dogs and all staff (including the chef) made us feel very welcome, always smiling and being genuinely nice.

We ordered 3 courses all of which were prepared and presented without fault, the roast dinner was as good as a home cooked one (I was particular ill impressed with the roast potatoes which didn't have that reheated quality to them). Honestly the food was cooked to perfection!!!

The chef came past a few times and had a bit of a joke with us about our dogs, he then reappeared with a cut up sausage for them.

The coffee was also amazing with a good selection, also an opportunity to choose your type of milk and decaf if you wanted.

The price was very reasonable coming in at £22 per person including all drinks and coffees etc.

This place is a diamond and my only regret is not finding it sooner.......

“Good food, decent beer”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

A really nice pub serving really good food. Staff very efficient and friendly. We went on a Wednesday when they have a singer covering easy listening jazz standards who is just excellent. Would thoroughly recommend it.
