Welcome to J and L’s Mountain Restaurant near Melton Mowbray; a French Ski Lodge inspired restaurant, serving freshly prepared food 365 days of the year.
We are open from 9am – 5pm serving food until 3pm, we then continue our service until 5pm with our yummy HUGE slices of cake and homemade MASSIVE scones served with jam butter and clotted cream (of course).

Whatever you fancy we can accommodate, whether it be a hearty panini or our famous French speciality the Tartiflette – layered jacket potato, white wine, garlic, onions, bacon & cream bubbling hot in delicious Reblechon cheese, served in a hot pan with a side salad & crusty bread.

All of our dishes are freshly prepared to order including our homemade burgers using Clarks of Queniborough local mince. Our chefs work hard to ensure that all of our food is as fresh and locally sourced as possible, we also cater for dietary requirements including gluten and dairy intolerance just speak to your waiter / waitress upon arrival.

Our Sunday Roasts are very popular and include a special offer that varies week on week, again all our meat is locally sourced from Clarks of Queniborough and hand seasoned by our chefs. Booking is very advisable for a Sunday so please do give us a call in advance.

If you have a special occasion coming up, a birthday, baby shower or a christening let J and L take care of you. Take a look at our events page for our menus and all the little details.

Spoil yourself or someone else with our Afternoon Tea, we guarantee it will be a treat.
