Voted 20th in a 2014 poll of the Top 50 Gastro Pubs in the UK, The Jack in the Green enjoys a secluded country setting in Exeter. A refined British dining menu takes pride of place alongside a wine list 17 years in the making.

Lightly-curried cod fillet with tempura mussels, apple and sultanas form a delicious starter on The Jack in the Green menu, and can be followed by the ‘totally Devon option’ of tender slow-braised pork belly with star anise, ginger and rhubarb sauce. An exquisite 5-course tasting menu features a la carte options paired with harmonising wines, while a light bar menu includes comforting pies and pub classics.

Vegetarians at The Jack in the Green in Exeter can enjoy a creative veggie menu, and there’s also a carefully-considered children’s menu for little diners. Venture outdoors for sun-drenched al fresco dining, while the interior boasts 3 elegant dining rooms and a classically-styled bar.

The Jack in the Green lies in Rockbeare, 7 miles from the centre of Exeter.

    + Amazing food, courteous staff, nice décor
    - Tough location to reach, limited selection of drinks (Otter is nice though)

    Fantastic service, thanks to the team. Our only comment is that the chef appears to have gone 'taste blind' when it comes to lemon! The posh prawn cocktail was difficult to get through as the avocado mouse was so tart, and likewise with the lemon whip on the JITG meats..

    Always a wonderful experience at Jack in the Green. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere. I tried monkfish scampi this time, absolutely delicious, delicate and fresh. Other guests had confit duck leg and lamb tagine, clear plates all round. Desserts were the most wonderful pannacotta with honey and sticky toffee puddings, winners both. Two courses came out at about £30, well worth the money. Great choice of ciders, wines and soft drinks (for the driver).

    Nice pub with superb service and very friendly staff. Good selection of interesting dishes that were expensive but worth it because of the quality and service. Our food was really tasty and beautifully presented.

    Excellent meal; very attentive and efficient staff.

  • (((** 7 June 2017 by Caroline from Portsmouth

    A pleasant evening. Service was efficient rather than warm and occasionally difficult to get staff attention. Food presentation was very good but I was a little disappointed in the quality of the dishes : flavours were not as distinctive as they could have been and the combinations within the dishes did not always work for me. I appreciated the effort made to present the petit fours with a birthday greeting for my husband. Overall rating 7/10
    Thank you
