I visited the Jack in the Green for a family celebration. The restaurant is about 12 miles from Exeter. As well as a bar area and main dining area there are several semi private areas that would be good for large family gatherings. The service was OK if a little impersonal, although the two ladies that served us were friendly... More

This isn't a vegan or vegetarian restaurant, so firstly, I am pleased that the chef has even thought about catering for vegans. However, they won't return if the food isn't up to much.

Excellent food, good unobtrusive service in comfortable luxurious surroundings. The Jack in the Green is a great spot for that special event, or just an opportunity for a really good meal in co for table surroundings. The staff are always attentive but not pushy.

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years, unfortunately I don't visit as often as I used to, as I have moved out of the area. Myself and various family members have enjoyed many wonderful meals, and business luncheons. In summer you can sit outside surrounded by fields or inside in the warm cosy back room for a meal,...

We called in here on our way home from a day out. We thought the pub lacked warmth and hospitality. Our meal was very nice but nothing special.

Really nice food and excellent service. Good value on the three course menu for £30! Limited local beers but good wine list. Very tasty crab cake shame about 2 bits of shell left in it but that was the only problem.

Stopped off here on the way to Exeter for the weekend and the food was amazing! My partner had the venison cottage pie and I had the fish cakes. Both were exceptional. Unfortunately we didn't have time to sample more of their lush looking drinks, maybe if we're ever in the area again!

Thank Jemma M
