Some History of this Pub
Externally, the 21st century Green Man Inn looks similar to the pub seen in the pre-war photograph below. A few things have inevitably changed. The garden to the right has gone - this may have served the needs of the pub at one time. Other attractive garden elements such as the old gate and the flower beds have also vanished. In 2007 a large tarmac car park filled the space between the pub and the main street passing through Clifton Campville. Although much of the original interior has been lost or covered with carpet, at least some of the room divisions are still in place. The right side of the pub has been opened out to form a large restaurant in what may have been a small parlour and the publican's living room. However, by today's standards the Green Man Inn is still a very welcoming hostelry. Furnished with a few of the older regulars, the bar makes a pleasant place to enjoy a few pints of beer.   more to follow......
