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.

    As ever the meal was faultless and cooked to perfection, very tasty and pleasing to the eye. Due note had been taken of my peanut and blue cheese allergy and so ate with confidence

    My Trip Advisor review:
    This restaurant goes from strength to strength
    Back in 2015, before John's House got it's Michelin star, I reviewed it and said that it deserved a star. Now I've changed my mind. Now it deserves 2 stars! Food was fabulous. The pork dish simply melted in the mouth. Perhaps that was because it had been cooked sous vide for 2 days, I was informed, and then blitzed to render the fat. (simplified summary). Really clever cooking with first class ingredients. Knowledgeable serving staff, too.

    If I've got to be really picky, I'm not convinced by serving pineapple with pork. All meat has a certain amount of sweet taste, and if you accompany it with pineapple, it's the fruit that dominates and wipes out the sweet meat flavour. That's why a cooking apple, which is more sour than sweet, when cooked, is a better accompaniment. Perhaps the classic chefs knew what they were doing.

    Nevertheless, a terrific meal - crab starter (with bells and whistles) and pear dessert (well thought out combination of flavours) made the whole thing thoroughly enjoyable.

    From the moment we walked in we were very well looked after. I’m lactose intolerant and everyone was very accommodating advising me what I could/ couldn’t have and altering the dishes to suit.

    I love this place, so cosy and hospitable. The service is attentive but relaxed and not too overbearing. The food was fantastic and the bread - wow - the bread is the best I have ever eaten in a Michelin starred restaurant, or indeed anywhere. The food itself is innovative and interesting without being overly complicated and pompous. I like the emphasis on seasonality.

    Great experience with even better food, so much care into the presentation of the food and very accommodating of requirements to avoid some foods as I am pregnant. Venison was our favourite, delicious.
