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.

    Faultless in every aspect & the perfect special dinning experience to celebrate the graduation of our sons from Loughborough Uni

    We purchased a gift voucher for my in laws for their Christmas present because we had a fantastic family meal at Johns House previously. They were really disappointed in their meal and how their dissatisfaction was dealt with by the waiting staff after they made them aware. We were really shocked to hear this, after having such an excellent experience last time and can’t believe that the staff didn’t try to resolve the issues or compensate my in laws in any way. Really frustrating considering how much the meal cost. Such a shame!

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant quite small but this made the experience more intimate. We had the set lunch which offered a choice of two courses for starters, mains and dessert. Although there’re was no vegetarian option I was asked by the restaurant, a few days earlier, if we had ant dietary requirements so I am sure that they would have provided a vegetarian/vegan alternative. The food was delicious and very well presented, each dish being an artwork in itself. For my taste my main course was a little over salted for my liking but nevertheless I really enjoyed it. The homemade bread was delicious. Extensive wine list with local gin and sparkling English wine on the menu.

    The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the taster menu, however I would like to warn future diners to use mosquito repellent especially if the weather is warm. My wife has six large angry bites following our visit. Their were an enormous amount of bugs in the upstairs dining area

    An excellent evening right from the start. A very warm welcome, attentive and caring staff and fantastic food. We have been several times before and it just gets better and better.

    Three course lunch was superb and good value for money, considering the quality of food served. The waiting staff were really happy and I felt as though they cared. Only slight weakness was chap on front of house, who did his job ok but didn’t give off the cheerful glow of the others. Chefs were excellent and my wife and are telling everyone we meet about the amazing onion bread rolls - so light and fluffy that they melted in the mouth but with a superb intensity of flavour. We would love to get the recipe! Overall a great experience and thoroughly recommended.
