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.

    The Jack experience is always a bit special and this was no different. We love browsing the menu in the bar over a relaxing drink before giving our order and being shown to our table just before the food is served. There is usually a very tasty amuse bouche and this time there was cod cheek scampi with saffron mayo and goats cheese tartlets - both very tasty. We had bresaola, belly pork, salmon fish cakes, sticky toffee pudding and rhubarb and rose brûlée. They were all delicious and the service was excellent - attentive but not overbearing. Another lovely evening and excellent value for money.

    Had a brilliant roast dinner here on Sunday. The soup was delicious and so were all the sides for the roast! Great prices and surroundings with friendly staff

    We always enjoy the food we eat there and we enjoy the ambiance, the care taken of us by the staff and the quality of the wine that accompanies the meal.

    We have been to you 3 times, the other twice booked by friends and we cannot fault the food, the ambience or the staff, our only moan is that we live too far away to come more often
