We walked into this pub tonight after feeling hungry.I ordered a 10oz sirloin steak,my wife a 10oz horseshoe gammon.As I am watching what I eat,so,after my meal arrived,had to cut around 1 third away as it was all fat.My full salad consisted of a small dish with lettuce,a bit of red onion and some cucumber.When I went to pay for this'meal' no money was knocked off and was charged £31.55p,when we should have been charged £15 tops for what we actually ate.Overall I have to say it was the worst sirloin ,apart from the Appleby Inn,I have ever tried to eat.
The Green Man pub is one of a chain of pubs owned by Vintage Inns, with several chains in the West Midlands area. In tamworth, The Tame Otter is the other Vintage Inn pub.
The Green Man is tucked away down a long winding country lane, as you head toward the M42 from Tamworth.
It's always been known locally as a gastropub with lots of national awards, until a few years ago, it attracted the attention of Vintage Inns, and was bought up.
They still do great food, but the menu is a bit cheaper, and the wines and beers and menu items are to be found throughout the country.
The food is always well-cooked, with nary a hint of frozen fare. The beers are plentiful, with some nice bitters on tap.
The wines aren't that interesting, and I think the entire chain could use a bit of Sommelier advice. When I see Hardy's on a wine menu, I run for the Nottage hills, and don't take the place's wine advice.
The Green Man is in an 18th century building -- beware of the ceiling if you're a taller chap, with great patina and character. It's very comfortable, and is set out in a circular pattern -- if you can't find a seat, just keep walking to your right!
All the chairs and couches are very comfy, and there's lots of private nooks for a couple or a small group to chat quietly.
The gardens are very pretty and expansive, and if the sun continues to shine, get out there and enjoy your food!
Set in the beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Tamworth this is a 'special’ pub. Its a 16th century coaching Inn steeped in local history. The interior is homely and warming and there are chunky wooden furnishings and exposed beams. I had not been since I was a child I am loathed to admit, but it was my birthday and we just wanted a nice relaxed intimate family meal. we were not disappointed. With so much other stuff going on we did not get there until half two and they were just finishing serving meals. The landlord quickly went to speak to the chef and they happily continued service just for us. The choice was not vast - basically either sunday roast with a choice of 4 meats. Or baguettes and salads if you are wanting something lighter. I would easily eat a roast beef dinner every day of the week if I could … so the decision was not hard. The portions were just right and the meat was so tender it just melted in your mouth. The veg was cooked just right too. The staff made a fuss of both of our children, and even gave my seven year old boy a free coke as he had been so good with his manners!!!!! We will certainly be back. Oh and the chef even came out of the kitchen and asked us if the food was ok.
