Review on The Green Man Inn and Restaurant
The well-maintained Green Man stands just outside the village of Partridge Green, but it's easy to spot: just look for the neat exterior, lawned garden and water features. Inside, the intentions are clear, with most space taken up by an up-market, open-plan dining room bedecked with rustic bric-a-brac and prints.
At lunchtime you can get a range of light dishes ranging from club sandwiches to a dressed-up 'late breakfast' assemblage of bubble 'n' squeak with a poached egg, smoky bacon, Parmesan shavings and curly kale surrounded by a cherry tomato fondue.
The full menu kicks of with appetisers (seared scallops flambéed in brandy with sweet shallot purée) and a handful of tapas including gulas (baby eels in garlic and olive oil with crusty olive oil bread). Cumberland sausages with mash and onion gravy just about the most traditional main course; otherwise, the choice is between pan-roasted guinea fowl breast with buttered cabbage, Puy lentils, wild mushroom and red wine jus and lamb shank with orange mash and root vegetable jus, while desserts could run to pear plum and apple soufflé pancake with cinnamon crème; also check out the homemade ice cream (banana and black pepper, for example).
