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.

    So-so experience. Such dull surroundings fir an older building food not the best. Steak tasteless chips not fried enough sauce round fish? And too much truffle oil all round. Couldn’t taste anything else

    Very relaxed. Attentive staff. Would have preferred more choice of healthy menu. Three of us went foe lamb hotpot and it was superb and accompanying veg were superb, beautifully cooked. A*** Other two went for fish and chips.
    Did not go for desserts as nothing REALLY took our fancy and a little too rich after our mains. Did not have starters as one member was coming from work and did not want to wait for only one who wanted a starter.
    It was my birthday and staff realised this and brought out a lovely selection of sweets with a candle - really lovely touch.

    We will be back.

    We arriving late but the staff were very understanding. There was a warm pleasant atmosphere in the bar area during our pre dinner drinks. We were kindly taken to our table before two other tables of 9 were seated - even after arriving late.
