Tris C left this review about Green Man

With elements apparently still extant, this pub dates from around 1700 as a coaching inn, reportedly the haunt of dandy highwaymen, the current structure then as now a Young’s house by 1900, situated in a none too attractive area.
With Young's having spent cash on looking flash, the multi-area interior has been given a hefty contemporary makeover with seemingly no respect for heritage: modern boarded, dark grey or white paint with some Arts & Crafts-style wallpaper and white Anaglypta ceiling with conventional lounge-style furniture. The bar has a tiled apron, then diagonal shiny turquoise ceramic tiles to a modern bar back and ugly tubular steel gantry; eclectic prints constitute the décor, all to a Dire Straits soundtrack and omnipresent smell of fried food, consumed by a mix of young customers with kids in tow, or elderly singletons.
A dull cask choice amounted to just London Original and Special, my Gamma Ray an obscene £3.80 a half.
The preferred option in these parts is the Telegraph, this place in its current incarnation, with lacklustre cask choice failing to stand and deliver.

An old traditional pub, now very much upmarket but retaining a pubby feel with lots of old dark wood in evidence and four or five separate drinking areas. Five handpumps in all with two donning Youngs Bitter clips, Youngs special on another with Guests of Sambrooks Wandle and Wimbledon Copper Leaf taking up the remaining two, the latter being hideously priced at £4.95. Nice enough pub but one best left to any stray tourists.

This is a Young’s pub, with the usual offerings on handpump, but it also has Sambrook’s Wandle on, like so many Young’s pubs these days. And it’s not cheap at £3.25 a pint for such a relatively low ABV ale. Food is available all day, with hot main meals around £10, and sandwiches circa £4 - £5. The bar counter faces you as you enter the front door, with drinking areas extending around to the right and left, and with several nooks and crannies. Floors are bare-boarded. There are mainly normal chairs around the place, plus a couple of sofas. Wall decor seems quite tasteful, and I spotted something very unusual - a framed engraving by a convict named J Wilson, commemorating HM Queen Victoria’s escape from assassination in 1882. The garden is accessed from a door at the back on the left – this leads to some decking with three or four tables and chairs, mainly used by smokers during my visit. Some steps lead down to the main garden area, which has some unorthodox features such as the giant chess set, and the highlight apparently being an inverted stainless steel pyramid as a centrepiece. It’s a bit avant garde for my tastes, but some people must like it.
This is certainly not a bad pub; in fact it’s quite comfortable, but it’s nothing like the traditional boozer it once undoubtedly was. I might come back – after all I have been in here before, but it is a bit out of the way and isolated, by London standards.
