I was taken here by the boys as part of my first stag do. Yes, I was fortunate enough to have 2. Anyway, we have already told you about The Cock Inn, Lewes that has exquisite food. The Green Man is just a few miles away just past a small East Sussex village called Ringmer.
This pub is HUGE inside, you have 3 different inside areas and a very large outside wood decked area for those summer months. The chances are you will not need to book, especially midweek and if you wanted to eat outside.
The décor is that of your traditional English pub, wood log fire, plenty of exposed wood beams. However, you have that modern extensions that are generally used for functions. We have been here a few times since this visit, but we wanted to highlight our beautiful summer May visit in 2018.
We had such a fantastic time at The Green Man. With just the perfect setting of the trees, decking, and fantastic food. Lets tell you about that now.
As you can see below, I had the Lasagne which can with you choice of chips or mash, along with seasoned veg. Of course you can never have to many carbs. So I ordered a side of garlic bread at the same time. Lets start off with my personal shortfalls. I like some crunch to my veg, but these were almost raw. Which is fine for the likes of the carrot, but broccoli and cauliflower? It is safe to say these were left.
However, the main event of the lasagne was delicious. It was oozing melted cheese and that rich ragu sauce. In hindsight, maybe leave the chips and veg off and just serve up with a portion of garlic bread. It was a massive portion that I barely managed to stomach. There was certainly not going to be any dessert here for me.
Tina went for a trusty traditional ploughman’s lunch. The sliced cooked ham, pickle, grapes, salad, and cheese is something you would never expect to see on a plate and be enjoyable. However, it is something about having an eclectic mix of goodies that just works.
Do not knock a pub ploughman’s until you have had one!
The baguette didn’t seem to be baked fresh, which to be honest is the same for 99% of the ploughman’s you will eat across England. Having said that, the rest of the plate was gorgeous. The ham was thick and the fruit and salad was crisp.
Hey, tiny Webber loved the celery we gave him and we enjoyed soaking up the sun drinking some fruity cider.
