Opened in 2002, L’Enclume’s idyllic riverside location in the historic village of Cartmel is the perfect setting for Simon Rogan’s distinctive culinary style.
The restaurant is a relaxed dining space with white-washed walls and minimally laid tables from which L’Enclume’s dishes can be best enjoyed.
We stayed for one night and ate at L’enclume and can honestly say the whole experience was incredible! The village is stunning, the building where we stayed equally as pretty. The room was lush and a perfect place to start the experience. And from the moment we entered L’enclume it felt like we were part of subtle but impressive performance which was a delight to behold. The staff were attentive and lovely! The food was amazing, each course was delicious and were in themselves an experience! I can honestly say it was the best eating experience we have had and was worth every penny! Thank you
As expected, we experienced exquisite cuisine - faultless. The wine was generally very expensive but most enjoyable. Main concern was lack of amenities available for the price. There was no seating or bar area aside from our room which, as a separate point, suffered from squeaky floorboards. We also visited two other award winning restaurants, both of which provided comfortable lounge areas in which to relax before and after dinner. We fully understand the space constraints imposed by such a small village but, despite Simon Rogan's stunning menu, we are unlikely to be tempted to return for these reasons. Regards, John Sykes
Excellent evening from start to finish, food and service was outstanding. Well done to all the team.
A magical, memorable experience. Outstanding. I hope to return.
From the booking process, right through to farewells at the end of the night, everything was impeccable. The staff are the most courteous and attentive whilst also the most humorous we have encountered. Graeme in particular is an absolute credit to your company and went much further than the extra mile for us on this stay. Whatever he’s paid...double it! Look forward to returning soon; all the best for the rest of this strange year.
In difficult times our dining experience was like a little bit of culinary heaven. It gave us three hours of tantalisingly beautiful combinations of a visual and edible feast. Every dish was served with The care and attention it deserved. The service was impeccable but also personal and charming. We will be back for certain . Juliet West
We had a great experience it was fab the food and the staff fantastic x
Fantastic experience . Food, staff, atmosphere all amazing. And they really cater for different dietary needs eg pregnancy
The restaurant was very noisy which spoilt the ambience. The service was also much more rushed than it has been when we have been before, it felt a bit like a conveyor belt which was disappointing.
Everything was amazing. What a wonderful experience.
A wonderful experience and sublime flavours in the dishes.
A wonderful experience in a wonderful setting . The level of service was outstanding
Lovely service, beautiful presentation. A fantastic experience.
Was a fantastic meal to celebrate my 40th Birthday Have made some fantastic memories
A simply delightful and wonderful evening at L'enclume with the food, drink and service alll at levels that are unmatched! Superb!!!!
We both agreed ( birthday meal for husband) that our lunch at L'Enclume was the best meal we've ever had. The ambience was great, staff were attentive and friendly but not intrusive, the dreaded Covid restrictions were all strictly adhered to in such a way that our experience wasn't affected one jot. Will definitely revisit. The food is, of course, sublime. Thank you
Sublime food - complex, intense flavours delivered with subtlety and panache; whilst the visual presentation dazzles and delights the eyes. The service is fabulous, with the staff working as a well-oiled, professional machine but always with the time to talk to guests and make each person feel like the most important guest. Simple THE BEST!!
As regular fine dining patrons, our first visit to L'Enclume will hopefully not be our last, although the 300 mile drive will unfortunately limit our visits to this excellent dining venue.
My wife and I received a Voucher as a Christmas Present 2019 and choose to redeem it for our 40th wedding anniversary . It couldn't have been more appropriate . To be fair ,what with the Covid restrictions ,we were a little nervous as to how the meal would progress. We shouldn't have been concerned. From the moment we entered the delightful L'Enclume we were made to feel special and welcome. The table setting was perfect and as for the service and food , words are not sufficient. Superb. We have eaten at top restaurants around the world but nothing as good as this. Will we return? Most certainly
The food was excellent and the price of the taster menu for me was probably a once in a lifetime experience. The wine prices I thought were excessive but then I am not a connoisseur. We had am unfortunate experience at reception when my partner fell into the room missing seeing the drop step completely which was very poorly highlighted. .Some better definition needs to be introduced.
My brother and sister-in-law thoroughly enjoyed their evening. Doing it for their 25th Wedding anniversary was an amazing experience so thank you.
This was a surprise meal for my wife who is due to retire from the NHS after 35 years service , I wanted a special meal for a special woman and you did not disappoint , service , quality and ambiance where all of the highest quality , we drove from Hampshire to eat with you our only disappointment is that you are not nearer .Thank you very much for helping us make memories
Fantastic organisation from booking to leaving. We were looked after with your usual high standards. Friendly, polite, helpful staff. We had no concerns regarding Covid 19 as your standards are so high. Thank you
Our second visit to L'Eclume and it was equally as good as the first. The meal tasted divine, a work of art. Our accommodation was very comfortable. A perfect two day break for our wedding anniversary. Brian
