Overall we really enjoyed the food we had for a special birthday. The starters were very tasty including the veal and the soup and the main courses were great with a nice mix of local food and European dishes. Everything tasted really fresh and the staff made us feel really welcome. A great place for a nice lunch.

Because of husbands hot air ballon ride (from the pub car park) & it being far longer than expected I found myself a patron of this pub. I didn't think the initial welcome was warm or authentic, but service did get better. A pot of tea whilst waiting was wet & warm, that's all- but the mugs used were very... More

I visited this bar / restaurant on a weekday evening with friends. The bar is welcoming, very peasant staff, serving a couple of local ales amongst other beers. All of us ordered the "Devon" special of 3 courses for £25. None of us were disappointed. The portions were not huge but were large enough. This place is worth visiting.

Recently an acquaintance passed away. The family ordered sandwiches for friends and family. The cost was prohibitive. There was NOT a lot of food.

I offer the following with some trepidation as this restaurant is a hidden gem. I've been a customer for over twenty years and they began at excellent and just improved from there, year after year. I've eaten in many apparently top restaurants on different continents but this "gastro pub" beats a great many 5 star cathedrals of food. The secret?... More

One of our all time favourite eating places in the Exeter area. Always a warm welcome and a varied menu which wins this restaurant, or gastro pub, so many awards. The best fish n chips you will ever eat. Good wines. Despite being surrounded by the building of the new town of Cranbrook this eatery continues to thrive. Brilliant for... More

Jack in the Green had been recommended to us on a few occasions so we finally went there one Thursday evening after i picked my partner up from the train station. It's a nicely done place but not unlike your average country pub setting. The menu was a mix of gourmet and trad pub grub, but some of the prices... More

I have been here with partner on a few occasions for an evening meal during the last 4 years and food is very special - always delicious. The evening atmosphere is usually buzzing and all staff very friendly as well as helpful. This particular visit was a birthday lunch and although the food was faultless the service was bland. Staff... More
