L'Enclume

Top choice modern british in Cartmel

'The Anvil' is run by the wildly imaginative chef Simon Rogan (often dubbed Cumbria's answer to Heston Blumenthal), and is without doubt Cumbria's best-known restaurant. Known for his boundary-pushing cuisine and off-the-wall presentation, Rogan's dishes often have a focus on foraged ingredients such as sea buckthorn, juniper, dandelion seed and Douglas fir. Reservations should be made months in advance.

Luxury accommodation (room £240 to £435) is also available.
