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.

    It was the first time that myself and my parents had dined at this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the manner at which the staff catered for our needs. The food was amazing and very good value, then just as we were going to pay one waitress said “before you go here’s a little something from us. It was a plate of petit fours with happy 50th anniversary written in chocolate around the edge of the plate

    We had a lovely meal however the portion sizes were rather odd. We had different options and I had finished mine and my friend was only half way through hers! Would go back but would be more conscious of what I ordered and portion sized.

    Polite staff. Liked the complementary soup in a cup. Good selection of menu items. Food not over played with by chef showing off. Let the food taste of itself
