Real Ale Ray left this review about Jack in the Box

An interesting venue for food and beer along with some fabulous features in Victorian architecture and design. We went for the Burning Sky Plateau and Wild Weather Cry of the Upstarts, both of which were in excellent condition.

Smithfield Meat Market has been converted into an area of food stalls around the perimeter with bench seating below the impressive glass roof suspended by huge iron columns the length of building know as Mackie Mayor.
It was in this context that Blackjack Brewery set up a bar ,with seating around the side entrance opposite the Smithfield pub.The mission was to showcase some of the highest quality real ales alongside the multitude of street food vendors trying to do the same with their food offerings.It's all very hip and trendy ,quite hectic but there is an upstairs verandah overlooking the crowd below,plus the seating by the bar entrance is calm enough.
Choose your ale and wander around,the choice from the bar was from 8 handpumps their own Jack in the Box Pale (very fine),Five Points Railway Porter,Six O Clock Split Shift,Siren Yulu,Anarchy Brew Boot Boys,DDH Pale,Blue Sky Plateau,Wild Weather Cry of the Upstarts and Harbour Cornish Bitter.
Given the range,worth including on a real ale crawl but don't expect a real pub experience,this is bar life.

Ooer! This place is all things to all people. What looks like a small pub is actually a large pub/restaurant/street food/wine bar/you name it it wants to be it place. Once inside you are greeted with an interesting bar with 8 handpulls. After this promising start it all goes downhill rapidly. Walk past this first bar you suddenly hit a huge open area with a wine bar/cocktail bar and several 'street food' counters. It looks good and if money isn't a problem then its great. For me, lots of or lack of money, its just an overblown load of nonsense. Impressive on first visit but better and cheaper places nearby, including the Marble.
