All 4 of us had the Carvery and were all more than pleased with the food and drinks on our visit, we were well looked after by the waitress & waiter. Definitely a eatery worth visiting, outside space looks good too.

Friendly and welcoming staff, and very tasty food. I don’t really understand why ordering on the QR code is beneficial to the staff; we felt it was a bit of a faff but saving 15% on £105.00 bill was obviously a sensible thing to do. Unfortunately my granddaughter suddenly felt ill while we were there, hence a meal left untouched. But would go again.

A little unprepossessing externally, but internally very large and bright with a very well decorated and pleasant environment for a meal. Staff are helpful and attentive and very swift. The food is very tasty and comes from an extensive and varied menu - portion sizes are very big and should satisfy every appetite Prices very reasonable for such a good location and ambiance. Definitely a place we will revisit when next in that area.

We visited with the family and we all had a great time. The children’s area outside is much improved since our last visit. The menu is very good and all our meals were superb and we booked to return on Bank holiday when we were there to choose another item from the menu although the ribs again would be a temptation. The staff were all great and everything was well organised around the present situation.

No carvery due to covid19, which most people had gone in for, yet still advertised outside. Food we ordered came out within 5 mins so must have a lot of deep fat fryers and microwaves. Staff were friendly. Ordering online works well.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Green Man. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. While I'm sure the food choices are well-cooked, I would have liked to see a little more choice (e.g. pasta, French, Italian and Spanish dishes, steak & kidney pie/pudding) but this was day one after a long period of shut-down so maybe the menu will expand in time. My one disappointment was the absence of draft beers, but, again, this will be remedied in time - probably already. Overall, I was glad the be able to go out for a meal in pleasant surroundings, and hope the restaurant is soon full of customers again.

Our first visit while staying with our daughter in Rackheath. Outside appearance not encouraging and would not have been my first choice but she had had a Sunday lunch delivered during lockdown and found it really good value so booked up for 4 of us. A quiet Wednesday evening. Friendly welcome, reasonably prompt service although surprisingly the child’s chicken nuggets were the last things to arrive with a delay of some 5 minutes which was unfortunate. Very large portions on all adult dishes and really tasty. Too big however to think of a dessert so will have to go back again to sample these when back up in Norfolk. A really pleasant evening for our first pub outing after lockdown and highly recommended.

The meal was during 'Eat Out to Help Out' or we wouldn't have been able to go. There are no complaints but we hadn't realised that the restaurant had become a diner since our last visit. That was disappointing to us as we don't usually eat this type of food but it was well cooked and presented by lovely staff in great surroundings. Portions are huge. We only had mains as we couldn't manage desserts!
