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.

    Jack in the Green is our favourite restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed but upscale. The food is fantastic and Paul always makes you feel at home. The prices are extremely good value for the quality of the food which I think deserves a Michelin star.

    An excellent pre-Xmas lunch with our neighbours. We have dined with you many times but the extensive menu continues to offer different choices on each visit. As always a friendly welcolm on arrival and attentive service throughout. I particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon and prawn salad with anya potatoes as my main course followed by the innovative christmas pudding ice cream -my granchildren would love it!

    A Michelin starred experience without the disproportionate price tag we love jack in the green for the wonderful customer service, comfortable setting and delicious food. Their tasting menu is very well priced but easily competes with other Michelin starred restaurants in the surrounding areas.
