Our Inspector's view
The understudy to L'Enclume sits cheek by jowl with its elder sibling in tranquil Cartmel, with a trickle of a river running alongside it. Behind the stone façade, a modern space has been fashioned, with zinc-topped tables under the gnarled old beams and a happy buzz of contented custom. The Rogan signature style of modernist treatments of gold-standard Cumbrian produce, some of it sourced from the proprietor's own farm in the surrounding valley, is capably expressed in menus that showcase a broad range of technique. Start with cured mackerel and an oyster, a bracing dish set alight with the contrasting sharpnesses of pickled vegetables and wasabi, before turning to a main such as the Rogan farm's pork loin in its own broth with spiced cannellini beans. Cauliflower dressed in Red Leicester, or confit new potatoes with garlic and thyme, are certainly a cut above the side-dish norm.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
