    Galvin Green Man is really near to where we got married and we invited two friends to join us here for Sunday lunch. We weren't disappointed- great Sunday lunch menu and very attentive and friendly service by all staff we encountered. Our friends also thought it was lovely and we all would recommend to anyone.

    The restaurant is in a lovely setting, with pleasant and efficient staff. Food intolerance's are very we catered for and staff are very knowledgeable about the​ dishes. The menu is varied and the specials and special deals are well worth trying.

    The wine list is also varied and reasonably priced. Try the mushroom brioche and the liver and bacon. Delicious. I shall be back for a third visit very soon.
