I stayed at a nearby B&B - the Grange, and they recommended the Jack in the Green. Glad they did because it was an excellent find. Not much from the outside, but looks can be deceiving. Make sure you make a reservation, because I barely got in it was so busy. The pub was comfortable with a nice selection of... More

Will start by saying, the only reason this isn't a five star is because I prefer the five bells- if I could give it 4.9 out of 5 I would. Having been here a few times, we recently came back for dinner. It was very nice indeed. An informal drink while talking and looking through the menu adds to the... More

Every few weeks we have a business associate who comes from London on a day trip to see us. We try to go to different places for lunch and, luckily, found The Jack in the Green. Although a little way out of Exeter and from the outside nothing special but looks can certainly be deceiving!!. A really lovely restaurant, lovely... More

Jack in the Green was recommended by friends who eat there often and I wasn't disappointed. I was tempted by several dishes on the menu but the time came when I had to make my decision. I was more than pleased with my choice everything was beautifully cooked and of excellent quality and well presented. The staff were all very... More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch which is around £30 for three courses. All the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I like that they automatically give you bread and butter and iced water when you sit down - nice touch. The menu is varied and has what at first may seem like traditional dishes but they have a...

I have visited this pub/restaurant several times over a period of years and have never, ever, had a bad meal. The menu is varied and imaginative and whilst it isn't particularly cheap, I believe it represents good value for money, given the consistently high standard of the food served. Each dish looks a work of art, but don't worry -... More

What is there not to like about The Jack In The Green. Great food at a very reasonable price with options from Pub Grub to a Full Taster Menu. The service is very attentive, and there are a lot of nice touches. This is definitely a must visit if you're in the area - but beware, it's very popular.

We turned up at the restaurant very scruffy after a day at the beach but were treated very well by the efficient and friendly manager. It felt very relaxed yet very professional. Delicious food, a few nice extras thrown in and all in all a very pleasant evening. The waitress even went back to chef to ask how sauce was... More

Visited here on the recommendation of a friend, for the first time for lunch on the way to a garden centre and was very pleasantly surprised. The food was great, the atmosphere was fabulous and the beer was well kept. I shall be attending again. A great experience all facilitated by the excellent staff. Good work!
