Good food - shame about the setting

We had lunch, and while the food was good (apart from the desert), this restaurant really lacks a few key elements - setting and service. The toilets are drab, need updating! The bar area - the chairs are looking like they've seen a good few costumers. The tables - no table clothes, and... read more

One of the problems with becoming successful is that you can, almost, become too successful, and, perhaps forget the very thing that got you there in the first place. We have been going to the Jack in the Green for nearly 20 years and have always enjoyed our food. WE moved away a few years ago, so our visits are... More

I have dined here with friends twice and have also attended a wedding reception. The owner is personable, attentive and friendly. It is possible to have a good value meal for a fixed price by choosing items in bold print on the menu - 'Best of Devon' choices. The food is interesting, full of flavour and they are generous with... More

The meals and ambience are cOnsistently of a high standard. Always a good idea to book if you hope to eat in the evening. Prices are quite high but worth it for a treat.

I went to the Jack in the Green for a works Xmas evening meal and it was excellent. Great menu choice and everything perfectly cooked. A bit pricey but certainly worth it. I have had meals there in the past which have always been really good and I will most definitely be back.

Decided to stay out of Exeter rather than doing the Premier at St David's (which incidentally is ok) googled hotels and elected to stay at the Grange Court in Rockbeare. Asked them about dinner and they said we don;'t do it here but we recommend the Jack in The Green. Took them up on the offer of booking me in... More

Great time for valentines lunch today. On arriving it was busy and I feared service would be slow but I found the staff to be pleasant and efficient. I had salmon and my husband had fish and chips but our 9 year old made the best choice ! Lamb stew. The lamb was sooooo tender. I would highly recommend and... More
