To celebrate Devon Restaurant Month, we’ve rounded up our top five favourite places to dine on local food and drink, which we’ll be showcasing throughout June.
First up and just down the road from us in Exeter is the brilliant The Jack in the Green at Rockbeare.
The Jack in the Green has been under the management of Paul Parnell since 1992 and the 24 years of hard work, dedication and passion really shows. Head chef Matthew Mason has helped the pub develop an outstanding reputation for fine quality, seasonal menus that strike the perfect balance between top quality food and value for money. Local produce is essential and The Jack in the Green proudly lists all of its local suppliers on its website.
We’re not the only ones who think The Jack in the Green is great – they’ve won a whole host of awards including being named Best Gastro Pub in the Devon Life 2015 Food and Drink Awards, being awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand and featuring in the UK’s Top 50 Gastropubs.
On the summer menu, you’ll find a tempting range of dishes from traditional ‘pub grub’ and bar snacks to a six-course tasting menu with matching flight of wines.
Throughout Devon Restaurant Month, The Jack in the Green is offering a ‘Totally Devon’ menu – a celebration of local suppliers with three courses for just £30. To book a table at The Jack in the Green, visit www.jackinthegreen.uk.com.
