Myself and my husband stayed in Cartmel at one of the restaurant's apartments and dined at L'Enclume on night 1 and Rogan & Co on night 2. L'Enclume was the first Mitchelin starred restaurant we had ever visited, and now that we've been to a lot more around the world (we definitely caught the 'good food' bug here), I can... More

You know when you're sat down in a restaurant, and you're having a meal with your family and friends? And then one of your friends says "ooo this is delicious, you've got to try this!" And you take their fork, and taste their meal. And then it's delicious and you sort of wished you'd ordered what they did? L'Enclume is... More

Absolutely, by far, the best food (and wine) I have tasted. Anywhere. If that's not enough, the staff are brilliant, too. Always been a Rogan fan (Fera is excellent) I've wanted to eat here for years but seeing as it's a 500 mile round trip, it's not really in passing. We had the 8 course lunch menu and wine flight....

I have been lucky enough to have visited a few Michelin starred restaurants but this one is far and away the best that I have been to. The unassuming entrance is easy to miss but once through the door the theatre begins. All of the food was amazing, seasonal, and local. The staff were attentive without being over the top... More

Superb. The food, the service, the surroundings. I couldn't fault a thing from the moment we arrived full of anticipation to the moment we left having experienced some of the best food I have ever tasted!

It's a really lovely setting and a well appointed interesting restaurant. All the staff have the right blend of formal and informal when it comes to making you welcome and introducing each course. Special mentions for Thomas, Pierre and Tom the head chef. It's a 3.5 hour event without the cheese so you are well entertained all evening with each... More

We where warmly welcomed an had a nice table in the conservatory, exactly what I ask for at the time of the reservation. A perfect start,... More

Once we had found the restaurant (although Cartmel is tiny, its not obvious), the theatre started from the first step inside. Forget any preconceptions about stuffy over rated and over-priced celebrity venues - this is none of them. A quick but well informed decision to go for the whole 19 course event was at first daunting but proved to be... More

Food service staff and ambiance were amazing and the theatre around food service was exceptional however teh signature wine flight was disappointing with too many white wines and a very odd japanese wine which did nothing to enhance the food or the experience...the wine flight was overpriced while the rest of the experience wsa expensive but great value...saving up to...
