We went to The Green Man at Thriplow which is just a couple of miles away from the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, Cambridgeshire. The unusual thing about the pub is that it is a Community Pub. It's owned by the locals rather than a brewery or independent publican. Apparently there were fears that it would close about 5 years ago and the people in the village clubbed together to buy the pub and appoint someone themselves to manage it. The result is that it is a pub with an amazingly friendly atmosphere and the locals certainly keep it busy!
We chose a few things from the tapas menu, lamb kofta with tzatziki and pita bread, feta, black olive and cherry tomato salad, potato skins with sour cream and chive topping with crispy bacon and jalapeño peppers and then a sharing board of continental meats.
It was delicious! Especially accompanied by a glass of Montepulciano red wine - one of my favourites. I love the idea that the locals own the pub and any profit is ploughed back into the business. We will certainly return - rumour has it that the Sunday roast lunches are amazing.
