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.

    Exquisite meal . Lovely restaurant and great service from all the team Good value food but wines seemed expensive compared with other comparable restaurants The only concern was around allergies - I emailed this it at time of booking. As a quality restaurant I assumed this would have been documented alongside our booking but nothing was checked . I was served my allergen which was not included in the menu description. As soon as alerted to the issue the staff resolved immediately and discreetly Perhaps allergies could be included on booking system to keep everything together or checked at arrival.

    Absolutely delicious food at John's House. This was a wedding present from my dad and two sisters, but due to Covid and booking availability before that, we enjoyed the gist a year later! Beautiful setting in a house, and warm, friendly, non intrusive service. The little snacks whilst waiting to be seated were a lovely touch too. We had booked the taster menu, but I guess due to Covid things change, so we enjoyed the 5 course set menu, and it was delicious. For those not used to fine dining you might think the courses a little stark in quantity, but they more than make up for it in the quality ingredients used, created to offer the perfect taste. My husband and I left the restaurant feeling completely satisfied and happy with the portion sizes and how tasty the food was. We will definitely be coming back again. I liked the fact that the design of the restaurant was simple, nothing fancy. Well lit so you can see your food whilst you're eating. And parking :)
