|Despite the fact that this place was actually quite busy when I was there on a Friday night, it is very spacious and I thought they could have easily put more tables in. Although if it was anymore busy I doubt we would have got served at all.|
The service was slow, the food cold and the staff looked completely disinterested.
I looked at the starters and thought the chicken skewers looked nice but thought Iíd pass and just go for the massive steak instead. Iím glad I did. When they say chicken skewers (in the plural sense) you donít expect them to give you just 2 of them! £4/£5 for 2. What a rip-off. They clearly think they are some fancy restaurant instead of just a glorified pub.
After passing on the starter I was more than ready for the slightly expensive steak. Despite the steak actually being quite nice and well cooked, ľ of the chips were burnt and the steak was far from hot. There was a group of about 10 of us so I wouldnít have been surprised if my steak been left on the side while the rest of the food cooked so that they could bring all the food out together. If this indeed was the case, itís very poor even of a pub to do that.
Overall a fairly nice place let down by quite a few big issues.

|It used to be a great pub, with atmosphere, nice staff etc. A new licensee has taken over, Amy Boulton, who is rude in the extreme, has zero personality, and tells the staff off in front of customers. It seems she is money orientated, not customer focussed, which she should be in todays market. The pub has a really high turnover of staff since she took over. The food, which seems her only concern when you turn up, is dreadful - every time we have eaten there, we have had a 'stomach issue', if you take my point. We no longer eat there, I hasten to add.|
Never again. Please avoid at all costs, unless this Amy woman goes, when hopefully it will return to it's previous glory. I live very close by incidentally, and have been using it for 12 years. There were no problems until this woman took over, so that says it all I suppose. All I can say is go elsewhere - there are much better pubs around here anyway.

|what can I say, a great building from the outside what character and history,did you know its got a resident ghost.We were very surprised by the decor inside, light and airy, fantastic colours creating a great atmosphere.We were greeted warmly and recieved a very high standard of service from carole and kathy.Our food which we ordered was again of a high standard, well presented, hot, and great value for money.We shall certainly visit the green man again, it was great to see such a happy bunch working here who were only to happy to make our visit one to remember.So if you are in trumpington pay this pub a visit....fantastic|
