About The Jack in the Green
A well travelled and rosy cheeked rugby aficionado running one of Devon’s most exciting freehouses – Irresistible!

Expect good local brews on tap – Otter Ale, Yellow Hammer and Cotleigh Tawny - and a crystal clear philosophy to serve only the best of Devon’s produce. Both restaurant and pub, the Jack oozes honesty, panache and that rare four letter word – CARE. Hungry diners travel from far and wide for a very warm welcome and interior free of modern day standardisation. Seasonality comes through in every dish. Ruby Red beef, Talaton porkers and Poll Dorset lamb from Whimple. All get the star treatment.

The team deliberately eschews the term ‘Gastropub’ and has been careful not to make the Jack purely a dining venue or to exclude families. Instead pub grub classics are given a delicious kick up the backside and the powerhouse kitchen flex their creative muscles across modern, innovative menus. Look to the chalkboard for daily specials from moorland game to plump sustainable fish like pollack and hand-dived scallops from Lyme Bay.

Small artisan producers such as John Rowswell, Mary Quicke and Carolyn Bellinger are chosen as they guarantee integrity, freshness and a friendly face at the back door. Menus are innovative with just a touch of alchemy. Pinned down to a description they’re Modern British. All are full of verve and punchy flavours with twists not always apparent until the flavours explode on your tongue.

Value for money is always at the forefront of our minds. The Totally Devon menu will stay fixed at £25 for three courses throughout 2009 and it’s also worth remembering that all our mains come complete with vegetables and potatoes. If you feel the price of our meals reflects the true value of local food then we look forward to welcoming you soon. If you don’t then you’ll be spoiled for choice on the high street!
