Hi Audi’s, Firstly can I say how absolutely charming and professional the staff at L’Enclume were during our visit. Each member of staff let their own individual personalities shine through while still providing a fantastic level of service. The courses we had were all amazing, with the desserts being the real standout. Our only slight negative was that we expected a more balanced wine flight between reds and whites, but this is a minor gripe, because the wine complimented each course perfectly. Thanks for a great experience Rosemary

Exceptional food and a pleasure to be with you. Your whole team were on form so well done. The oyster meringues were simply remarkable, a taste up there with the best. Thank you 👍

We came back for a second time and L’Enclume did not disappoint! Insanely delicious food with beautiful ingredients from their farm. Definitely our favourite restaurant.

Really enjoyed the food and the friendliness of the waiting staff. Nice informal atmosphere. Staff worked very hard all evening but still looked liked they were thoroughly enjoying their time.

Thomas was exceptionally warm and inviting! The food was exquisite and it was an added bonus seeing Simon in the kitchen plating our food. We were staying in Cartmel for 1 wk and our visit to L’Enclume was most definitely our highlight. We look forward to returning again later in the year. We can’t thank Simon and all his team enough for such a memorable evening!

Friendly service, but portions too small. Several dishes were excellent, but way over priced. A tiny bit if potato with onion ash was the low point.

We love L'Enclume. This was our second visit and our special treat at the end of our honeymoon. Such a relaxing, unpretentious restaurant with such friendly and fantastic staff. The food was outstanding (whey onions, egg yolk, tunworth being our particular favourite - never tasted anything so good in my life). I would always recommend the wine flight as truly good wine brings out so much in the already amazing food. It's not so much a meal as a journey around the local area! Nothing bad to say. We will be back!!

Thank you for an amazing meal, the staff were amazing and super friendly and made our meal extra enjoyable. They could not be more helpful and kept us amused with their humour. Would be back tomorrow if I didn't live so far away!

Beware the tepid jug water - send it back, and the offering of a complimentary cheese course. The waiter and manager will insist that a supplementary cheese course was actually offered despite the word of three customers.

Amazing food, every mouthful so delicious its almost a cliche, Ive eaten at the newly opened Fat Duck and your food is better. My only observation would be the service felt a little soul-less - I can't put my finger on it but we didn't feel it with our server or sommelier. There was a lack of charm I felt - the level of talking and interacting was right it just felt robotic,

We were lucky enough to enjoy the outdoor area to start then moved into the restaurant for the rest of our tasting menu, my 8 year old son loved every bit of it as much as us! Thanks again, a 5 star experience from start to finish.

Everything was wonderful - we had the full taster menu for lunch and the food was the best we've ever eaten. The service was great - polite but informal and friendly enough to put everyone at ease, and the staff were all very knowledgable about the food. The room was excellent and made for a comfortable stay. Thanks so much L'enlcume - we will definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful eating experience at L'Enclume recently and the service was fantastic. However, we thought it would have been improved by having less courses and larger portions. We felt rushed with the first 5 or 6 courses, they all came out at once and it was a little confusing. There was sufficient food but it wasn't as satisfying as having a full meal. A tasting menu is great for an experience but we prefer eating a la carte.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend as a one off. No doubting the skill and execution of the dishes served. You are also paying for the service received from the many waiting staff frequented during the evening. Value for money? Perhaps a little over priced but hard to quantify. Have eaten at many top restaurants and this is a different experience due to the numerous courses. I was left wishing for something more substantial but perhaps that is for a different occasion. Also had to ask for a water refill 3 times before I was obliged. Overall a memorable experience but not one I would feel the need to repeat. There are many fine restaurants in the north that are just as good value and life is short! Overall though very glad to have been. I hope you continue to do well.

Surpassed our expectations in all regards. Emilio, who was in charge of the floor on that day was most gracious and all the staff were knowledgeable and professional. Each dish was prepared with creativity and beauty and the tastes were a delight. We particularly liked your wine list.
