Our competition celebrates the launch of the Jack in the Green’s new cook book

To mark the launch of the Jack in the Green’s new cook book we’re offering the chance to win a copy AND dinner for two at the acclaimed gastro pub at Rockbeare, near Exeter.

The prize is a three-course ‘Totally Devon’ dinner for two at The Jack in the Green with a complimentary bottle of wine (Excludes Friday & Saturday nights).

The Jack in the Green is one of Devon’s best-loved restaurants. Its transformation from a near-bankrupt, dilapidated roadside pub into somewhere consistently recognised by the AA, The Good Food Guide and Michelin is a remarkable tale of drive and determination spanning nearly 24 years. This journey has been overseen by proprietor Paul Parnell and head chef Matthew Mason who between them have now spent a staggering £5.2 million on local food alone.

This 168-page book is their story and features a supporting cast of suppliers, customers and friends. For the enthusiastic home cook there are 42 easy-to-follow recipes spanning 8 different chapters. Staying true to their roots as a country pub there is also a section on bar snacks featuring their own classic fish pie and a South American inspired chilli pork belly.

As part of their ongoing support for the local community £5 from every book will be given to FORCE Cancer in Exeter. To order a copy please visit the Jack in the Green website or call 01404 822240 for details on local stockists.
