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.

    Excellent food, especially the Hogget. The new upstairs room is a MAJOR plus adding to the sense of occasion while facilitating social distancing. Staff were very pleasant and professional, especially (?) Pedro who was easy to engage with over food and wine.

    Utterly brilliant - My wife came with her friend for lunch and had the taster and wine flight. Their second visit and both said one of the best meals they had ever tasted and experienced We will Be back - well done

    Having had the opportunity to try other Fine dining/Michelin Starred restaurants, we decided to try Johns House as it is local to us. We went for lunch to celebrate 2 birthdays and a graduation and can honestly say its the best restaurant we have dined at. There was a relaxed ambiance and all the staff were very helpful and professional, they explained the menu and answered any questions we had. When we were served our food again the staff were professional, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The food was AMAZING! Would highly recommend a visit and we will definitely visit again.

    Fabulous food in a cosy character setting. It would be difficult to choose a favourite (we had the taster menu) but I particularly enjoyed Tom's Potatoes, the lightly salted cod and from the deserts, the English cherries with pistachio. The home made bread is sublime. The staff are obviously highly trained and extremely knowledgeable of the food... which is very apparent. Perfect amount of time allowed between courses. In these difficult times of the pandemic the ambience of the whole evening felt very normal and relaxed. They have clearly done their best in the most difficult of circumstances. Highly recommend for any occasion!

    Fantastic food in a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was exceptional with very attentive staff. A lovely experience even with all the COVID measures in place. It still feels like a real treat.

    Loved our lunch experience at John’s House! Each dish was perfect and the staff were very helpful and accommodating when helping ensure I was ok with the ingredients due to being pregnant. The pork dish and the blood pudding were among the favourites!

    We had the tasting menu, and as usual we were very happy with the service and the intricacy of the dishes. I particularly like the Hoggett course which was amazing.
