SOUTH Cumbrian restaurant L'Enclume, owned by renowned chef Simon Rogan, has been named the "UK's greatest restaurant" by the Good Food Guide for the third year in a row.
The restaurant, in Cartmel, which the guide describes as an "unassuming location for an undoubted pinnacle of new British cooking" was awarded the best score possible.
The guide said many of the dishes on the menu have become "long-running masterpieces".
Mr Rogan said: "There are a lot of amazing restaurants around and for L'Enclume to be awarded number one in the Good Food Guide for the third year running is very special. And us having three restaurants in the top 17 is a massive achievement from the team."
Also included in the guide was the Lake Road Kitchen, in Ambleside, which was named as the Best New Restaurant.
