Really enjoyed our meal here, the food was exceptionally tasty far above pub grub. The decor is calm and peaceful, lovely countryside location. The stand out was the excellent and friendly service. We will definitely return!

Tried the Jack In the Green for first time having known many people who say it was nice. It was really lovely meal. Brilliant customer service, very quick to serve the food which was really lovely (Sunday Menu, Thai fish cake, Chicken, Sticky Toffee Pudding and my partner had Ham Hock, Pork and Souffle and Ice cream) Highly recommended especially for a special occasion.

We had a really enjoyable meal last night at The Jack in the Green, We'd taken advantage of the 'meal deal' link with Larkbeare Grange which priced the 'Taste of Devon' 3 course menu at £25 per head which was extremely good value for money. After an unexpected amuse bouche we had a packed meaty ham terrine and intriguing goat's cheese knicker bocker glory (very tasty!) for starters; followed by Belly Pork and Sole Veronique = both perfectly cooked with crisp seasonal vegetables on the side; a generous portion of well kept Exmoor Blue cheese and smooth Creme Brulee rounded off our meals to perfection. The berry fruit sorbet with the brulee was packed full of juicy flavour. Wine list offers a good selection of reasonably priced wines (plenty in a £20 - £40 range). The bar area and dining room are tastefully decorated in a contemporary style. Service was good too and the Owner very attentive.

This was an unpleasant visit due to the total lack of truth about the contents of the meal you get and how it correspondes on the menu,they were tiny portions that looked as if they were prepared hours earlier or even the previous day,most of the meals were hugely over priced ,you could only draw one conclusion from the demeanour of the staff that they were performing a faulse parade of helpfullness which had to be done to distract the customer from the reality of what they were being given in respect to the size of the portion of thier meal was going to be.In all honesty i orderd a duck meal not a starter for £9.50,the whole meal includind potatoes could have been placed in a tea cup,my partner had a starter which didnt seem fresh,again suspectingly pre prepared ,tomatoes and potatoes with no mass or volume inside,ie wilted or dehydrated,my conclusion is if you want service but eat low quality jazzed up to look good good food,then this is the place for you.does anyone know the difference between fresh and warmed up food
