My favorite restaurant, Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume in Cartmel has just been rated the second best in the UK by the Good Food Guide 2012. Number four last year, L’Enclume is now second only to Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck.

I was at L’Enclume a few weeks ago and it was delightful. The sun was shining in the garden next to the stream and the eclectic cooking was better than ever; imaginative, fresh, extraordinary. All local produce.

It’s worth going out of your way for. Cartmel is a beautiful village and handy for the Lake District, Kirby Lonsdale, Lancaster and the Coast. There is a great pub/bistro in the village, also owned by Simon, for lunch too. Give it a go.
