About The Green Man
If you’d have come to the Green Man in the early 1850s, when no doubt porter was the tipple of choice, the governor in charge would have been the wonderfully named Cornelius Meaker. Times change and Meaker has long met his maker, but the Green Man continues to thrive, a lively community pub with plenty of wood panelling and well-worn wooden floors, while at the bar you can choose from six cask beers and a selection of keg, while those with a penchant for the botanical can go for a gin, of which there are nearly 100 different varieties.
The Green Man Mission Statement
The Grade II listed Green Man is an atmospheric, wooden-panelled masterpiece of a pub, with such a powerful sense of its own comfort and joy that it almost feels like a country pub has been magically transported into the heart of Kingsdown. The fifth pub to be bought by Dawkins Ales, it serves excellent food including big-flavoured burgers during the week and a widely-lauded Sunday Roast for which booking is essential. Oh, and we’ve got plenty of good beer.
