As always a super dining experience. I always go for the tasting menu because to sample the wonderful combination of flavours is a delight. There is nothing bad to be said about anything - a joyous experience!

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.

    We were a lunch party of 6 and all of us were delighted with the taste and presentation of the food we ate. Particular favourites were the smoked trout starter, with its perfectly balanced flavours and extremely pretty appearance, and the unctuous blackberry dessert. Some of our party, though, thought that the portion size of the pork main course was too small and more suited to a taster menu. The three younger members of the front of house team provided excellent service throughout; all were attentive, yet unobtrusive, and unfailingly courteous. It was jarring, therefore, when their older male colleague introduced one course less politely, interrupting our conversation with a brusque 'Madam!' Since being treated like naughty children diminished our enjoyment of an otherwise fine meal, we have awarded only 3 stars for service.

    Another excellent lunch at John's House. Delicious food, relaxing surroundings, and great service from the friendly and professional team there. I was visiting with an elderly friend and the staff were wonderful with him, attentive when required but leaving us plenty of time to enjoy our unhurried lunch together. Highly recommended and excellent value for a restaurant of this quality.

    We had the taster menu and were not disappointed! Every dish was beautiful. The staff were friendly and efficient. A delightful anniversary meal!

    The food was nicely presented and the flavours were incredible. I booked the 7 course taster menu and each course was very different from its predecessor and a delight. We were sat at out table immediately on arrival as the lounge area where you are normally presented with three pre dinner snacks was full, so instead we were given our snacks at the dining table. They were all served in a timely manner. The next seven courses were not served in the same timely manner, and other guests that had arrived after us and were also having the taste menu, had finished their dining and we were somehow 2 courses behind, and kept waiting up to 30 minutes between courses. We were served by a different member of staff after each course too which I found strange.

    First time visit for a birthday lunch. Excellent all round. Service was spot on and not oppressive; everything just when we wanted it. We shared all the food and were impressed with subtle flavoring and individual tastes.
    Value for money seems to be just right for lunchtime, and we will definitely go back to try dinner. We already have a friend booked it on our recommendation.
    Not everyone will enjoy Mountsorrel, but some of my most memorable meals have been in working villages and farms. A castle dining room does not guarantee quality of anything!

    Great way to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Great service and surroundings. Staff attentive and food was amazing! Especially enjoyed the heritage tomatoes and gazpacho and the pork belly.
    Parking limited and a bit tricky reserving out of car park onto main road.
    Would go to restaurant again.

    Fabulous restaurant. The taster menu with pared wines was superb. The food was innovative with lovely flavours and it was great to be offered such a lovely selection of wines to try. The staff looked after us wonderfully from start to finish. We will definitely be heading back soon.
