If buildings could talk, The Green Man public house and restaurant would have stories enough for a lifetime. Boasting almost four centuries of history, this olde-worlde tavern has fed and watered travellers from far and wide since being granted its license in the early 17th century. Outside you’ll fi nd an expansive beer garden complete with a green lawn, while the interior bears the hallmark charms of the building’s vintage, with brickwork walls gilded by the accumulated trinkets of its many former owners.
The Green Man’s menu stays true to this history while offering modern ideas. All food is cooked fresh and to order, and the kitchen sources only the fi nest local produce; an ethos which results in menus with fantastic seasonal diversity. With main-course options including the delicious Devon crab spaghetti, sweetened by cherry tomatoes and offset with lime chilli; the tender and succulent lamb rump served with creamy mashed potatoes, and a crisp suet pastry steak and ale pie, you’ll quickly be smitten with this venue’s updated take on the traditional. Be sure to leave room for dessert – with choices as appetising as the Pimm’s cheesecake, and the pomegranate and yoghurt panna cotta, you’ll inevitably want to return to try more.
