We have been to The Jack In The Green a number of times and it is a favourite for excellent food and attentive service. The menu gives a good selection of choices to cater for differing tastes and appetites, with delicious desserts. A nice seating area pre- dining is another plus.

We stopped there for dinner on our way to Cornwall and very nicely surprised by the imaginative take on standard British pub food. The quirky word plays on the walls gave the place a original atmosphere.

A genuine gastro-pub - friendly, attentive staff with excellent inventive cuisine. The desert could have been served on MasterChef - a very clever reinvention of the rhubarb crumble while the confit of duck was perfect.
