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.

    Easy to find. Plenty of parking. A gorgeous welcome from lots of happy, attentative staff. There is a lovely seating area to have pre-dinner drinks and peruse the extensive menu. We all loved our food and were fortunate enough to be seated near the one fire in the old cosy part of the pub.

    First time visit with my husband and we will visit again, the food was superb. Husband had venison and myself rump. We liked having a pre-drink in the bar area and being able to choose from the menu before being seated in the restaurant. Great evening

    Excellent evening, superb food, lovely wine, it couldn't be faulted. Paul and his team are first class and really know how to look after you. We all had the tasting menu and would highly recommend it to others.
