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.

    Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely sunny day for once (!) so we changed the table to sit outside. Food was delicious. Very fresh fish perfectly cooked.
    A bit pricey maybe but we enjoyed our lunch and will probably return.

    An excellent dining experience for five people that was to celebrate an award to my sister-in-law. The food was great, as it always is at the 'Jack' and served by friendly, efficient staff. Best feature of the restaurant - relaxed and efficient service. The food is, of course, perfect and beautifully presented. We liked the British rose wine from a vineyard only a few miles away.

    From the moment you arrive till you leave the service is impeccable, staff are very attentive to your needs. The food is absolutely amazing, beautiful flavours and presentation. Highly recommended. You won't regret it.

    As ever we were spoilt for choice. Deciding eventually on the roast beef. We were not disappointed. Melt in the mouth. We were concerned initially that our usual enjoyment of the Jack was going to be spoilt by a family with two young sons who were playing on their devices, one with the volume up quite high. Fortunately the mother picked up on our having to talk louder over the noise. We do hope that if this is a trait that staff will be able to request the mute button be used!

    We hadn't been able to meet up for some time and it was great that we were left in peace to have a good chat in a friendly environment.

    This was our third visit and the food was just as good this time as it was in the other occasions.
    The service is excellent as is the ambience
