Forrester's Arms was built in 1870, at its current location on Main Street
in Greytown. It was a country pub offering all the services expected
of such an establishment: stabling, meals, spirits and such, accommodation
and transportation to and from the railway station.
In 1999 the name was changed to The Green
Man. The Green Man is a motif which has been used throughout the
ages, stemming from a legend in the Middle Ages.
He is most commonly found carved into
buildings and churches, peering out from foliage and blending in with his
surroundings. The green man has numerous meanings from man's
connection with nature to a pagan god.
2010 saw a major facelift, and another name change to TurkeyRed Greytown Country Hotel. Turkey red is an ancient red dye
