We visited as a family celebration and very special treat. Having been once before we were overall somewhat disappointed and felt standards had slipped. Staff were very good, but might have smiled a little more readily. It felt slightly as though they were tripping out...More

After visiting in 2011 we just had to return. Such an amazing experience, we love the ambience and super service (with lots of humour which we love!) but obviously it's the food that makes it. Imaginative and super tasty, it was truly faultless. I don't...More

I had the best meal I have ever eaten at L’Enclume. Delightful in every detail, from the service, location and if course the fabulous menu with truly exquisite flavours.

This was our third visit to L’Enclume. Our last time was in 2012 (there didn’t seem a point schlepping up the M6 in the couple or so years that Simon Rogan had a restaurant in Manchester). There’s been some changes since then. Gone is the...More

We went for a birthday treat lunch and it was a gastronomic experience par excellence. We had booked the 9 course starter menu. Parking in the village is time restricted so we would recommend you use the nearby race course car park as lunch was...More

We stayed at L'Enclume recently and of course had dinner at the eponymous restaurant. To be honest, it confirmed our feeling that we prefer a smaller number of courses and with some choice, instead of the 15 tiny set dishes on the tasting menu. We...More

By far the best fine dining with Michelin stars restaurants I have been. My wife and I had the full tasting course, which lasted 4 hours over noon. All 16 or so courses were a joy. As their full tasting menu changes from time to...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!
