Loved L’enclume from the moment I walked in. The restaurant felt like it was an extension of the calming village with a sense of professionalism. Clean, fresh & full of flavour.

We visited L’Enclume as part of our honeymoon. It’s somewhere that I’ve wanted to visit for years and it really didn’t disappoint. We’d eaten in Andrew Fairlie’s at Glaneagles a week or so before and L’Enclume was ten times better. It was relaxed but still...More

I think we got 8 or 9 glasses in total? Decent measures - and about right! We had the cheese course - and the extra wine pairing. Another 3 glasses!
