We both had the taster menu for our Valentine's Day lunch and it was superb. I've had the taster menu at other Michelin Star restaurants (one with 2 stars) and this ranked up there as my favourite. The new eel dish was a pure delight.

Awarded a Michelin star, John’s House Mountsorrel serves exquisite homegrown food, using local produce to create flavour-rich British and European dishes. Exposed brick walls and open fires, create a charmingly rustic setting.

Innovative mains include fillet of Cornish sea bass with chorizo and avocado, and Gloucester Old Spot piglet with pineapple, peanut butter, sage and blood pudding.

To finish, sample the classic cheese board, or tuck into creative desserts like sea buckthorn curd with white chocolate sorbet, liquorice and sweet cicely. The wine list at John’s House restaurant offers an extensive selection of bottles from around the world.

    The whole experience at John's house is perfect. The food is locally sourced and cooked to perfection, the service is exceptional with the staff having a great knowledge of the dishes. The restaurant has a comfortable lounge area downstairs and the dining area is on the 1st floor.

    The only very minor criticism I have is that the restaurant is not that easy to find at night, we had to call for directions but now we’ve found it, it won’t be a problem again.

    We had a wonderful dining experience and will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.

    Thank you to all the staff at John's House

    The atmosphere was wonderful from the second we walked in - so relaxed and calm. Beautifully little cottage feel. The food was amazing. We had the 7 course taster menu. Perfect timings between each one. The pearl barley risotto and cod and brawn dishes were literally perfect!! We have enjoyed many fine dining experiences and this was certainly one of the best - It was a wonderful dining experience and we will be back.

    Hi, thank you for asking for feedback. The lunch was to establish a loose network for six working ladies. A couple of us had been before. Everyone thought it was fabulous. Victoria who doesn't like sweet corn or black pudding ate both saying they were delicious! The food is the best restaurant feature but strongly followed by the atmosphere where you get the impression you are welcomed into a warm informal country farmhouse to have a relaxed meal. Some 'fine dining' establishment such as Hambleton Hall and The Manoir Quatre Saisons being too overpowering in their quest to impress.
    We all thought it was perfect.

    Not used to dining at this level but found the experience exceptionally rewarding. Food and service was excellent.
    My wife requires Gluten Free and she was catered for superbly.
    We will be booking again.
