    L’Enclume

    One of the UK’s best restaurants. Executive chef Simon Rogan’s simple, imaginative L’Enclume typically exceeds its formidable reputation, serving florid takes on foraged ingredients and food sourced from the restaurant’s own 12 acre farm.

    Lake Road Kitchen

    European

    A wild-maned toddler of a restaurant, bound for great things, Lake Road Kitchen is an exciting place to eat. The baby of former Samling chef James Cross, it is one of the leading lights in the Lakes foraging trend, serving mostly food grown in Cumbria, as well as aged retired Dairy Holstein txuleta (steak).

    The Samling

    The Samling is a delightful lodge and fine-dining restaurant oozing exclusivity. A favourite of Hollywood celebs (like Tom Cruise), it’s easy to see why this charming collection of restored farm cottages is thriving.
