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 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).
