Blackthorn _ left this review about The Green Man

This pub is one of a handful owned by the local Dawkins Brewery and although tucked away in a residential side street, it’s well worth making the effort to track it down. It’s quite small internally with just one compact room, and it can frequently be full to capacity, although it was relatively quiet on our recent Saturday afternoon visit.

Decor wise it’s quite traditional with wooden boards on the floor, large windows along the front of the pub and some contoured wood panelling in places which was quite attractive. Seating is a mix of an old pew, padded bench seating around the perimeter and bar stools. A pile of board games was available to use and a small TV was mounted up on the wall, although fortunately this was not in use. There was some stained glass above the bar which looked traditional but is presumably fairly modern since one of the panels incorporated the pub’s current name, when in fact it changed from being The Bell about ten years ago. Behind the bar was a large collection of miniature Star Wars characters.

Beers on tap were predominantly their own with Bristol Blond, Bristol Best and Revolution. These were joined by Electric Bear’s Inspector Remorse and Black Boss. A sixth pump appeared unused. Ciders meanwhile were Aspall’s Suffolk and their own Bristol Cider. All in all I thought this was a great pub and well worth checking out.

A very popular one roomed pub in a residential area. We visited here on a Thursday night and the pub was full, we just managed to get a small table near the front door. The main attraction for visiting here was their Dawkins beers. There were three Dawkins on handpump, so I started with the Bristol Best, then the Gold and finished on The Ultra at 6.2%, I bottled out and only ordered a half of that. Downside, the toilets were a disgrace and Mrs A didn't like the heat in the pub, hence the condensation down the windows like a reptile house.
