Restaurant description

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 food, excellent service, and we felt completely safe - anti-covd precautions were effective, but not over-obtrusive.

    The evening was very pleasant. The food as always is of a high standard I tried the fishcake this time which was very tasty. The staff were friendly and polite as always.

    All food was very good (chicken, fish & mussels) thank you. Unfortunately both trifles were served in chipped dishes - one we noticed before eating and that was replaced, the other was only spotted after the sweet had been started. Although in general we were impressed by the covid precautions in place, we felt that, particularly given the number using the dining room, we could have been better located further away from other diners. We also felt that it would have been reassuring to see staff wearing masks - a requirement now!
