Grab yourself a mean feast at The Green Man in BristolPosted on: 14 Mar 2017
The acclaimed Kingsdown pub is as equally renowned for its top-quality grub as it is for the extensively-stocked bar, which is packed full with a stellar range of ales, gins and other alcohols. If you haven't visited yet, you really should.
Though the 17th March will see much of Bristol turn temporarily green in honour of a certain Saint Patrick, there is one evergreen pub tucked away off the Kingsdown Parade that sticks fast to its true colours all year round.
The Green Man, its liquid offerings only matched by its gustatory produce, is anything but deciduous. Behind the counter, 102 different bottles of gin vie for space with the six casks of real ale which are always rotating. If that is not enough to tantalise the taste-buds sufficiently, food is overseen by the boys from Bear Grillz, who flip a mean burger and certainly know how to serve up a Sunday roast.
Housed in a Grade II listed building, The Green Man is a Dawkins Ales venue with all the warm, comforting charm of a country boozer. The homely, welcoming ambience created by the wood panel decor is also enhanced by the quirky additions of cool, kitsch memorabilia dotted around the place including film posters and stacks of board games for a quieter moment.
An ardent Geordie minus the accent, Sam seemingly strove to get as far away from the Toon as possible, as soon as university beckoned. Three undergraduate years at UoB were more than ample time for Bristol (as it inevitably does) to get under his skin, and so here he remains: reporting, as Assistant Editor, on the cultural happenings which so infatuated him with the city.
