On March 4th 2017, Johnny opened The Spotted Duck as a 10 month pop-up.
Based in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, on the edge of the iconic Charnwood forest, The Spotted Duck offers a relaxed and informal experience without the compromise of quality. Inspired by the seasons, Johnny’s dishes are both seasonal and exciting, seeking the foundations from those dishes we all know.
“I always wanted to go back to our culinary roots. Revamp those dishes from the past; those dishes that we all know, but perfect them. And that is the challenge. The problem is people have expectations, and it is my job to exceed those expectations.”
The restaurant was a platform for diners to sample some of Johnny’s food and to see his take on the classics.
Having closed the doors in January 2018, I am now on the look out for investors to join me on the next part of my journey. Could it be you?
