Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place had been talked up a bit so thought we would give it a go. Menu was average, great if you were after pizza but beyond that there were few options. We were staying nearby and the mobile reception is terrible in the area....The Green Man has wifi so thought we would upload some stuff while there. Our iPhone 14's wouldn't connect but according to the staff we didn't know what we were doing, yeah right.More

Loved the warm and cosy vibe and our food and drink was all excellent. Such an awesome setting both inside the cafe/bar and outside in beautiful Peel Forest. If you have time, also go further up the road and visit the gorgeous Church of the...Holy Innocents. Epic location and history. Lots of short or long walks available also. Can't wait to go back to Peel Forest and the Green Man!More

Our group of 12 people rolled in for a late lunch, without booking. No problem with finding tables for us. Orders taken promptly. Knowledgeable about gluten-free options, which were also marked on the menu. Laid back service, and food was good.

A group of 19 visited this cafe for lunch. We had pre booked and preordered our food to ensure that enough of our food preferences were available. All went according to plan and we all enjoyed our lunch. Apparently the Green Man beef and ale...pies were delicious! My Chicken filo and salad was creamy and delicious!! Some had toasted sandwiches, Chips, soup and bread roll and some just had a muffin. All declared their food was delicious. Lovely cafe and great ambiance. The staff coped with our influx of people easily and as there are two dining areas, there was plenty of room for other diners in the other room. Will visit again!More

Popped in here on a cycling trip and what a wonderful cabinet of delicious-looking food they have. Both savoury and sweet foods looked luscious and if I was wanting food, there would be plenty to choose from. However I just wanted a chai latte to...take on the bus and was delighted to hear they charged 50 cents for the takeaway cup. Fortunately I had mine with me and they filled it with the most yummy chai. Great service.More

The fact that a bar/restaurant/cafe exists out in this beautiful area is great, the fact that it's this bar is even better! The atmosphere and decor are fantastic, the food is great, there's nice craft beer and cabinet food and the owners are great people....Highly recommend!More

We happened across this cafe/pub/restaurant all rolled in to one when going to Mount Peel. It is well worth a stop for refreshments. Their menu is great and all homemade from what I can see. They have a great range of beers on tap plus...a fully stocked bar for those that want something stronger. We ordered a pizza and a falafal salad. The service may have been a little slow, but the food was excellent and well worth the wait. We will definitely be back.More
