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.

    A very pleasant experience, aided by a courteous and knowledgable team. Relaxed, 'non rushed' atmosphere, and excellent food.

    I booked John's house for both lunch and dinner so having had such a great experience with lunch we could hardly wait to go with friend to celebrate my wife's birthday with the intention of savoring the taster menu. We've been to many top restaurants including Sat Bains, Le Manoir and The Fat Duck and whilst they are all different we think John's House is right up there with them in terms of food quality and creativity; the service is also very attentive and good explanations are given for each course.

    Food and Service was incredible. Couldn’t be better. Made to feel so welcome and comfortable.

    Overall a very interesting and unusual combination of ingredients for most courses. My favourite was the Hogget, closely followed by the Cod, though the chef excelled with each course. The sommelier was knowledgeable and it was good to discuss the wine selection which was well matched to the food. The staff were exemplary, welcoming, friendly and efficient.
