I've not a great deal to add to Trish's review below. This is a typical pubco pub, but as well as the usual suspects of Doom Bar and London Pride, it also had on Hogsback TEA and St Austell Tribute. The latter was in good nick, and at £2.15 a half pretty good going for Soho. As Trish says, this pub has been expanded into the bulding on the left, and the extra room this created was where any sensible person eating here would use as a dining area as it was furnished with normal tables and chairs.

The food seemed to be the usual sort of pubco fare - the so-called "cheese and bacon gourmet burger" was £8.45 for a "single" and £10.95 for a "double". The special was scampi and chips at £12 for two, but not much use if you're on your own.

This seems nothing like a locals' local, but more like a simple largely typically characterless Soho pub. But the Tribute was in good condition at a reasonable price (for Central London), and I've been in much worse. Not really worth going out of your way to visit, but handy enough if you're in this part of Soho.

Tris C left this review about The Green Man

A mid-18th century hostelry rebuilt at the end of the 19th, grade II-listed which expanded into the left-hand building in 1998; I suspect that the whole interior dates from this time too, being a half boarded and half carpeted panelled interior, which looks modern, even though much of it was covered with fake cobwebs as an indication that the seven-hour festival that is Halloween, was just 19 days away. There are TVs (pretty much in your face), loud banal music, sauce bottles on tables, bright lighting, flashing games machines, loud transient people (one seen taking his pint downstairs to the loo), eclectic tall furniture, a Tricolour and Guinness bunting, perhaps trying to give the impression that this is an Irish pub, perhaps to attract the tourists.
English wasn’t the barmaid’s strong point, but she did serve me up a very decent half of Purity’s Mad Goose at a reasonable £4.30. Also on offer were Pride, Doom, Landlord and Rosie Pig cider.
I think this is a very poor pub, but given that it’s just a few yards off Oxford Street, that should have come as no surprise to me.

A larger-than-it-looks pub just off Oxford Street with a modern, bustling sort of feel. Definitely a pub of two halves: the side with the bar is something of a blokes' boozer, complete with several sports TVs, while the left hand side is tabled and more sedate. The fairly unexciting range of handpumped beers included London Pride, Doom Bar, Ghost Ship and Pedigree, but at least there were a couple of ciders also.
