Love the Jack and eat there frequently. It's kind of a pub of two halves, on one side an informal "pub" atmosphere, but on the other, a fine dining restaurant. The food in the latter is superb, especially the fish and chips or the fish cake. Good selection of local real ales, which are always well kept. Pretty much the... More

Very good service. Extensive menu with equally extensive wine list. Restaurant is very relaxing and has a very large lounge area.

Behind an unprepossessing facade lurks a wonderful pub and restaurant with good food and outstanding service. A casual passer-by would not give this modest looking establishment a second glance; it looks scruffy and second-rate. However prepare to be surprised; the interior is classily atmospheric and the staff are welcoming, polite and responsive. The menu is varied and original but, above... More

As I travelled alone last time it was good to take family on my return! All were raving about the food and thought it was the best they ever had. Thank for making us so welcome Paul and I'm sure as Arny said I be back.

Having heard such rave reviews my partner and I decided to give the jack in the green a try. On arrival we were seated in a bar area where we remained for almost an hour. We were given menus (which only included about 10 items all of which we could tell would be incredibly over prices for the tiny portions... More

Arrived wondering just what we would find having seen the reviews. The outside dooes not reflect the interior, which is attractive with the tables well spaced out. The welcome was "efficient", which was the only minor criticim I would have. The food was excellent and reasonnably priced. The service at table is first class; friendly and efficient. Drinks and wine... More

We recently visited this pub after lots of favourable reviews on a rare mid week day off. The kerb appeal is pretty poor but don't let that put you off as it's much nicer inside. The menu is fairly extensive and it's great that you can mix between a la carte and pub courses, which is exactly what my husband... More

On Wednesday 16th. July 2014 my wife Linda and I took our daughter Gemma and her friend Odah for a Birthday treat. The weather was so good that we were able to sit outside. The service was very good and the choice of menu was excellent. The presentation was first class and there was no rush betweem courses. This was... More
