As a dining experience, it does not get any better than this. Sheer poetry from start to finish. The entire team are so professional and cater for your every need. The food (all 17 courses) was sublime. Personally, I stepped out of my comfort zone with the food and I am so glad I did. I have tried things that... More

Having been on the ‘want to go to’ list for a very long time, we eventually managed to organise a trip to the Lake District and a dinner reservation at this restaurant. We drove from our nearby hotel (warning, if you come off the main roads in this area, you have to negotiate very narrow, and very dark roads) to... More

I booked l'enclume for six people as a birthday surprise for one of them. The team were very helpful in helping with the surprise, organising a suitable table and with our staggered arrival time. They were also very good with our dietary requirements so that we could have the 8 course menu. The attention to detial of the service was... More

We went for Sunday lunch - decided on the 8 course lunch. Rather than the 18 course taster. Graham and George were are servers, Nina looked after our drinks. All were knowledgeable and polite. Nina wine recommendation were excellent. Thomas the manager took us round the kitchen were we met head chief Tom, and before we left we also gave... More

The food was really good, imaginative and tasty for most of the 8 courses(£55 a head). Our lunch time eating experience was marred by the rather too familiar welcome which came over as being less than sincere and the table we were given. The latter was changed so we did not have to sit in the crowded conservatory which has... More

We booked a table at L'enclume in October after a recommendation from one of my friends. Although we had to wait until February to dine in this restaurant, I need to admit, it was worth to wait ! I have had an amazing dining experience with so many delicious dishes ☺ Everything was very tasty and very lovely served. It... More

Simply amazing food served with style and panache and the ultimate attention to detail throughout our entire three hour Sunday lunch experience. Add to that an incredible price for an eight course meal in a two Michelin star restaurant and you have an undoubted recipe for success!

A very special dining experience for my partners birthday. We had the taster menu for lunch, which comprised of seemingly endless little plates of beautifully presented, unusual and delicious food. We particularly enjoyed the langoustine, Guinea hen and the caramel pear desert. The service was exceptional with the waiter even running out to put extra money on the carpark for... More

We were generously given our overnight stay and tasting menu dinner for our Wedding last November so understandably our expectations were high! We were not disappointed on any level in fact the whole L'enclume experience was a joy. As the tasting menu had 17 courses a description of all here would be portentous, so suffice to say the menu had... More
