The Green Man was popular with US airmen during the Second Word War, as it was close to the RAF Horham airbase. Glenn Miller certainly visited the pub, as photographs exist of him standing outside it.
The building standing here now (shown in the gallery) is not the original pub building, but is a more modern one constructed on the footprint of the pub (even incorporating a porch in the same position).
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map

Thanks to Phil Saunders for letting us know that the building on site now is not actually the pub.
Closure date from Hoxne licensing records.
