Restaurant description

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.

The John’s House menu evolves with the seasons, beginning with dishes like Wye Valley asparagus with quail egg, truffle and crispy chicken skin, and raw Orkney scallops with crab, cucumber and elderflower. 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.

Serving award-winning food in relaxed rural surrounds, John’s House Loughborough is a 6-minute drive from both Barrow Upon Soar and Sileby rail stations.

    Exceeded our expectations (and our expectations were pretty high!) lovely, characterful restaurant, friendly staff and delicious food - amazing flavours, beautifully presented. We had the £30 lunch menu and are looking forward to returning for the full taster menu soon

    As you would expect at a Michelin restaurant the presentation and cooking was to the highest standard. However for me the brown sugar dessert took the experience to another level.

    The food, ambience and service are wonderful. The room with the fire place where you're served initial drinks and gorgeous hors d'oeuvres is welcoming and cosy. The dining room is stylish and comfortable, but relaxed. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The food is sublime. Worthy of two Michelin stars in my view - the complexity of the dishes and the variety of flavours are fantastic.

    Great overall customer experience. Felt very welcome and relaxed on arrival. Service was spot on. Food was amazing. Both had the salmon starter and hake main. Homemade juice drinks were so good!!! Would love to return for dinner and stay over so we could enjoy the taster menu and the very extensive wine list! Really good value for money with the quality of the food and experience. Thanks to all the team!
