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.

    Service excellent, covid restrictions followed. Salmon and crab tartlet delicious. Lamb very tender and vegetables cooked perfectly. Two complaints 1. Gravy? Better without it - Tasted like bisto. 2. Mint sauce? Concentrated should have been diluted with vinegar,
