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.

    In these strange times it was a joy to discover that the Jack in the Green had once again opened it's doors. I have been going there on and off through it's various transformations for at least 30 years and very rarely has it failed to please. Last Friday was no exception. The service was brilliant and the food exceptional.

    Excellent staff etiquette. Very friendly and professional. Was in a group of 9 . Despite the Covid hurdle of getting a table booked for a large group , they accommodated us with due diligence . The food was nothing short of a Michelin star restaurant. Each and everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed the gastronomic experience . I have travelled extensively in business and holidays and this has been the best of them all . The food was just to die for . Keep it up and for sure if in Devon or Cornwall will book the restaurant a month in advance ??

    First visit to a restaurant following covid19, would definitely return. Fab service from start to finish, easy online booking, food delicious, staff provided excellent service. Felt environment was a safe place to be without feeling clinical. Excellent first experience dining out, would be hard act to follow as they have set the bar extremely high.
