The Green Man & Courtyard
School Road, Toot Hill, CM5 9SD
Proudly positioned in the charming village of Toot Hill, this family-run pub and restaurant headed up by Lamty Bouchareb offers a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike. In fine weather the attractive courtyard restaurant is the ideal place to relax with a refreshing glass of wine or a pint of local ale. Whether you settle down in the shade of an umbrella, or bask in the sun with a pleasant bite to eat, this is an idyllic spot. The Green Man welcomes friendly pups, making this the ideal place to retreat to after a dog walk. This versatile spot is also available to cater to private functions including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and christenings. In cooler weather retreat to the dining room, where attractive traditional features like exposed wooden beams combine with light and airy paintwork. Guests can enjoy the likes of creamy steamed mussels, blanched whitebait and grilled goat’s cheese tart, and that’s just to start. The Green Man’s talented chef Lamty Bouchareb’s menu brings together classic English dishes with exciting international twists. Guests can expect delectable mains like tender chicken breast in a mushroom and white wine sauce, and a range of juicy 28-day-aged steaks. For fish-lovers, mouth-watering options include pan-fried king scallops and grilled fillet of wild sea bass. There’s a good selection of dishes to tempt the vegetarian palate too. There’s even a dedicated children’s menu to encourage little ones to dine. If you’re in the market for a hearty lunch, the lunch special features a set two or three courses from a concise but tempting menu. Those hoping for a light bite can also choose from a selection of bar snacks, sandwiches and panini. If you pop by at the weekend, you’ll find a sumptuous Sunday roast with your choice of beef, pork, turkey, lamb or the vegetarian roast of the day. Every roast comes with the full complement of seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, sage and onion stuffing and, of course, gravy. Why not round off your meal with a warming apple crumble, or a rich white chocolate brûlée? With all this in store, you won’t be short of reasons to visit.
