Everyone enjoyed their meals and we felt the bill was reasonable. What more could you want? There is a large car park and the restaurant is on the main road and is easy to find.

We stayed at Grange Court and this pub is about a 3 minutes drive away. We ate from 2 different menus. Fishcakes from the pub menu and Cornish Brill with crab from the specials. Food is well cooked and professionally served. Personally, I found the 'marmalade' style sauce with my brill a bit over powering, however it was well cooked... More

Yes the Jack in the Green is truly a wonderful pub/restaurant. We stumbled upon it by accident many years ago and have been coming here ever since, and have never been disappointed. It is probably more restaurant than pub, but we have spent many evenings in the bar with just drinks. Wonderful soft leather chairs, beautiful decor, fantastic staff, great... More

The Jack in the Green has to be my all time favourite place to eat out. Everything about the Jack is first class from the attentive yet not intrusive staff to the amazing quality locally sourced food. If you haven't been, you absolutely must !!

Their local beers are good, so I am told by my husband! Enjoy lunch or dinner in this very pleasant pub where you will experience really... More

Stopped in for a quick bite and had a great meal. The home made black pudding, bacon and ducks egg salad starter was very well balanced. The fish cake main was tasty and generous. Definitely a great pub with great food. Would recommend.

The first thing I should compliment is how accommodating and polite the staff were. We rang about 15 minutes before arriving on Mothers Day and asked for a table. Once we got there the staff had no problem finding us a spot and made sure we could wait comfortably in the lounge area before our table was ready. Our orders... More

5 Stars all round !!! Award winning chefing is always backed up by the first class service and hosting, very tastefully decorate throughout. Clever menu'ing means there is something for everyone and can match any budget. Smashing wine list.
