With the end of many restrictions this year, we as a country are looking forward to going out for food and drinks locally more than ever before. We have shortlisted a variety of the best restaurants located for those with homes in Market Harborough. We have Michelin star restaurants through to traditional friendly pubs with mouthwatering menus.

  • The Red Lion is a gorgeous country pub in the small village of Great Bowden. They have a covered outdoor area which has been made using recycled wood from various sources, during the summer months the garden is a wonderful sun trap and during the winter months the pub supplies soft blankets and heaters to keep you warm. The Red Lion is a short drive from the local new homes in Market Harborough meaning it's a perfect spot for a Sunday afternoon lunch. 

    If you are looking for a touch of luxury then The White Swan has recently been taken over by Michelin-trained chef Rory McLean. The pub has a total refurbishment and regularly updates its 7-course tasting menu to enhance the seasonal ingredients at their peak quality. If you are looking for a new home in Market Harborough you will not be disappointed with the hidden gem on your doorstep.
     

  • A short drive toward Mountsorrel is a family-run petting farm, shop, cafe, and restaurant called John's House Restaurant based at Stonehurst Farm. The one-star Michelin restaurant may have the shortest journey from field to fork with everything from herbs, vegetables, and meat sourced from their farm and surrounding fields. The quality of the food is superb and quite rightly award-winning with an ala carte menu through to 7-course tasting menus. 

    For those looking for a taste of Italy on their doorstep then Sapori is a fabulous choice with Sapori meaning flavour in Italian. The restaurant is owned by a native Italian family with recipes from their hometown featured on the menus, they have also featured in several magazines and nominated for several awards for their cooking. 

    Another popular choice for locals is The George Great Oxendon which is another traditional British pub located a short drive from Market Harborough. The venue caters to traditional taste pubs with Sunday roast through to vegan-friendly menus and delicious afternoon teas.

It is tucked down a little alleyway so make sure you keep your eye out for this welcoming cafe. They serve tasty homemade cakes, sandwiches, and meals throughout the day with a sizable courtyard with tables and chairs to enjoy during the summer months (although it is open all year if you’re brave and enjoy the cold!) Milos also caters to vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets and are happy to amend ingredients where possible.
