Amazing food, top notch service, excellent evening

I went with a group of 8 for an evening meal to celebrate graduation and it was definitely a meal that suited the celebration. The food was fantastic, we were served drinks whilst we waited for the table and chose our food - no hanging around at all evening though we were early for our booking... read more

We had booked for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The petunia flower baskets around the building are spectacular, and there is ample parking. The comfortable bar makes a good environment for choosing the meal. Staff are very attentive and approachable. Tables are a good size and not close to each other. Table presentation good, without tablecloths (OK) but with paper... More

"Gastropub" understates the excellence of this fabulous pub/restaurant. The cuisine is of starred standard which is absolutely superb, and I am not easily pleased! Service is pleasant and at just the right speed, neither rushed nor slow. A very friendly and helpful proprietor, Paul, presides over the proceedings, and is clearly justly proud of the dishes produced by his chefs.... More

We went as a group of five and had a really great evening, The food was exceptional (loved the monkfish!) and service was fantastic. Our guests were travelling and got caught in traffic - the staff were very helpful with moving us to a later slot even though they were busy

Needed somewhere nice to have lunch when visiting our sonic Exeter. Reviews looked good and to a large extent they were well deserved. Friendly greeting and a nice lounge to have a pre-lunch drink. Menu excellent and everything was tempting. We had main course and puddings. Fish and chips and the fish cakes were good choices followed by the signature... More

Salads, breads, foods and drinks are wide in variety and flavours and they accomadate well for dietry requirements. Service staff are alright but main focus on food and drink. Nice calm atmosphere, stress free. Mains are delicious, all dishes presented smartly and pretty in many cases, would recommend scotch eggs but fish pie was incredible - chunky, saucy, rich and...

Lovely dining experience. Have been to the Jack on many occasions and enjoyed it every time. When dealing with food allergies they are confident in their advice and very accommodating when it comes to tweaking menu selections. Lovely atmosphere and the young staff are a credit to themselves and the proprietors.
