Escape from the everyday.

Dating back more than 500 years, The Green Man is an historic village pub brimming with character.

The Grade II listed building, built in the 17th century, was originally a family home and greengrocers’ shop. It has been a pub since 1840, when Eleanor Oliffe became the first victualler of the newly named Green Man to serve the villagers who worked the land at nearby Thorndon Hall.

The Green Man has retained many of its original features, including oak beamed ceilings and three original fireplaces.

When the weather is warm, customers pack the pub’s large garden, complete with large pond and waterfall feature, and barbecue area. If you’re in search of a comfortable and friendly place to relax and enjoy a drink or meal, look no further than The Green Man.

The Green Man has live music every second Saturday evening, covering a range of genres from guitar duos to soul singers and rock bands. Trivia buffs will enjoy the pub’s free quiz, which takes place every Tuesday from 8pm. There are prizes to be won, and a cash jackpot up for grabs.
