Published on: Thursday 6th September 2018

L'Enclume has been named as the best restaurant in the North West by the Good Food Guide.

But the Cartmel venue has lost the top spot in the country after four years to Nathan Outlaw.

The guide, published today, placed Simon Rogan's restaurant at number two overall.

But, it secured a cooking score of 10, making it the seventh year the restaurant has received a perfect 10.

The guide says: "Simon Rogan has achieved something of a miracle.

"His farm-to-table operation has influenced chefs right across the country; it's beyond dispute that British food owes him a lot.

"The obsessive search for flavour begins on the farm and continues in the kitchen where Rogan's approach is to extract maximum flavour from produce that is already pretty intense.

"L’Enclume delivers a complete package, with unobtrusive but attentive service that underscores the impressive food and drink."

Mr Rogan's London restaurant, Roganic, is also in the top 50, at number 20.
