An excellent meal out. The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. As a vegan I particularly enjoyed the options that I was offered. The staff were friendly, cheerful and helpful. Our corner of the restaurant was a little cool, but that was the only downside to our visit. Other areas felt warmer.

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.

    Great lunch!

  • (((** 12 January 2018 by Terri Rogers from London

    Lunch with my partner and brother, who came out from Exeter on recommendation. Good pub grub, well presented and served with verve. Could have done with more veg. There was a cosy atmosphere when we entered with a log burner, but in the dining area there was no atmosphere, no fire, some windows were blanked out. Standard dark wood pub furniture. An opportunity missed we felt.

    Food was excellently excellent. Service a bit down on previous though - no carrying the drinks served before meal, no pouring water at the table and the between course waits were loooooong but apologized for.

    Good imaginative food and service,not your usual pub grub. Great wine list.
    Only negative comment, the home made ice cream is not a patch on what I make at home.

    Excellent food that was served in good time. Friendly, attentive staff. We were a party of three and we all very much enjoyed our meals. It was good to see that the Jack publishes a recipe book and donates £5 to charity for each copy sold. This gives me a good feeling about the standard of the cooking and food, and is a practical demonstration of their confidence. The owner greeted us personally and was genuinely interest to know that we enjoyed the dining experience. All in all, a first class experience.

    The pheasant was delicious as was everything. The attention to detail and atmosphere perfect. Very good value for money and definitely will go again
