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.

    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.

    Our first meal out since the lockdown started in March for a friends special birthday. Johns House didn’t disappoint, food and service were both terrific. They managed the dining rooms really well, tables spaced out well. Both fish courses were brilliant and the deserts were amazing. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

    Do I really want to share how much we enjoyed returning...?? Do I really want to tell how lovely their new dining room is? Do I really want to talk about the beautifully presented and tasting food? Not really because I want John's House to remain catering for its loyal, local clientele rather than Michelin foodies ticking it off their visit list and making booking a table more difficult. If you genuinely love great food at very reasonable prices go visit, but leave some space for me!!!!

    Gosh, what an absolute treat! We booked post Covid-19 to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. Such relaxing surroundings to dine in, amazing food, a revelation in each course of the taster menu. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about everything, very friendly but not intrusive and very attentive. We lived every thing about our experience at Johns house and cant wait to visit another time. Thank you ??
