5 Fine Dining Establishments to Go Out for Dinner in Charnwood 

Older people and their carers can enjoy dinner at a fine dining restaurant in Loughborough and the surrounding villages. This is an experience that can bring joy and quality of life and companionship to those in their later years. Look forward to a special experience when you book a table at our favourite places in Charnwood.

Once you get to a certain age you can enjoy the finer things in life. You have more time to enjoy the simple pleasures of going out to dinner and relish the prospect of spending time in the company of others as you slow down and realise what is truly important in life. At Home Instead our carers are well versed in providing access to information about the best places to visit for a lovely meal, and they can, if you wish, carers can accompany you to these fine restaurants as a companion. We introduce you to some of the finest restaurants to eat in Charnwood. 

Caravelli, Loughborough

Caravelli, run by Massimo Torre and Luigi Bornello is the perfect place to enjoy fine Italian food in Loughborough. Just around the corner from the Home Instead offices it is the perfect place to take your elderly companion. You can pop by on your next visit to the office. The food here is cooked with care and love and that is the same whether you choose the traditional lasagne or a fillet steak. Set in a prestigious part of the town, you can watch the people go by as you dine in fancy surroundings. Enjoy conversation with your carer and time to relax and unwind. 

Johns House, Mountsorrel

Leicestershire’s only Michelin starred restaurant Johns House in Mountsorrel is a wonderful place to celebrate a special birthday or mark an anniversary of something special, and why not take along your carer. Owned by John Duffin who returned to the family’s farm after years of working in some of the county’s finest kitchens. Homegrown ingredients, many from the family farm, are used in the refined dishes. There’s a seven-course tasting menu featuring delicious bites such as toastie truffled custard Domaine Bruno Sorg, cream of Porthilly oyster horseradish and seaweed, porridge of ancient grains, Cornish cod peanut, crab, grapefruit and Thai spices, roast Gressingham duck, walnut, savoy cabbage and hen of the woods, Beetroot Liquorice, yoghurt and balsamic poached rhubarb coconut and tarragon and to finish the selection of Artisan British cheeses. They also do a lunchtime menu for older people who have smaller appetites. 

Quorn Country Hotel

The Shires restaurant is a wonderful place to visit with your carer on a day out exploring the countryside that surrounds Quorn. Enjoy a sophisticated meal in this AA rosette restaurant. The dining room features Romanesque murals of rural country water scenes with crisp white tablecloths mirroring the luxurious full-length curtains alongside the dramatic windows and a panoramic view of the manicured gardens beyond. You and your carer can indulge in classic British cuisine such as roast butternut squash velouté or goats cheese pasta or seared scallops with a cauliflower puree and bacon. Corn fed chicken with pomme fondant and wild mushrooms is also a firm favourite but don’t forget to leave some room for the sticky toffee pudding. You and your Home Instead carer can then walk off this feast in the four acres of land surrounding this wonderful establishment. 

Browns Lane, Loughborough

On the outskirts of Loughborough town centre, Browns Lane serves modern British food in a classy setting. Helmed by head chef Viktor who has over two decades of experience in fine dining restaurants, he presents an al a carte menu. The charcuterie board is perfect to be shared with your carer. Meanwhile, treat yourself to something special such as salmon, pressed duck terrine or sea bass – you deserve it. Browns Lane welcomes pensioners and their carers who want to treat themselves to the finer things in life.  If you think the mains are delicious, wait until you see the desert menu!

The Pear Tree, Woodhouse Eaves

Woodhouse Eaves is a wonderful village to explore with your Home Instead carer, and while you are there ensure you book a table at the Pear Tree Inn. This is a family-owned business run by three brothers: Riccardo, Gianni and Marco. Their father Gino, and mother Janet opened their first restaurant called Mamma Mia’s in Loughborough in 1986. While Italian is still at the heart of this tavern come restaurant, the al a carte menu is bursting with flavours from around the world – from Loch Fyne salmon from Scotland to Umani Broth from the Far East. There are also delicacies such as Pear Tree prawns, pressed pork belly or fillet tar tar with confit egg, truffle and red currants.
