Jack in the Green

Jack in the Green, Rockbeare, Devon, EX5 2EE
What looks like a basic pub, and still functions as a local (serving real ales), hides a smart neighbourhood restaurant focusing on locally-produced food cooked in an almost global manner.

Starters can be as diverse as ‘Home-cured Bresaola with Parmesan and Rocket’; ‘Lyme Bay Crabmeat with Avocado, Crème Fraiche and Gingered Cucumber Carpaccio’ to ‘Lambs Sweetbreads with Chicken Mousse, Puff Pastry and Morels’ or ‘Grilled Capricorn Goats Cheese with Raspberry Dressing and Roasted Pine Nuts’.

An autumn menu brought ‘Exmoor Venison Loin with Parsnip Purée and Chocolate Game Reduction’; ‘Pan-fried Fillet of Salmon with Tomato Butter Sauce’ and ‘Breast of Chicken with Smoked Bacon, Shitake Mushrooms, Juniper Berry and Madeira Sauce’ among the mains.

They have an award-winning pastry chef, so desserts are a strong point with perhaps ‘Chocolate Mousse and Black Cherry Sorbet’; ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding’ on offer. While the more savoury-toothed might be tempted by their selection of Devon cheeses with biscuits.

There’s also an ambitious bar menu offering the likes of ‘Braised Faggots with Onion Gravy’; ‘Thai Green Curry’ and ‘Fish and Chips’ – but it also includes lighter snacks such as soup and ploughman’s.

Friendly, helpful service.
