CARTMEL’S L’Enclume has been named the UK’s top Good Food Guide restaurant for the second year running.

Simon Rogan’s Michelin-starred eatery scored a perfect ten to top the Waitrose guide for 2014.

For the first time in 15 years, three restaurants scored full marks in the guide, now in its 64th year.


L’Enclume kept the top spot with Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck, which has now scored a perfect ten for seven years in a row, held off in second place.

Mr Rogan said: “We feel so privileged to be at the number one spot for a second year for L’Enclume.

“The full ten rating really is a reflection of all the continued focus and improvements we have been undertaking at L’Enclume every single month. The team just keeps on getting stronger and stronger, and we now also have a hugely skilled front-of-house staff who more than match our culinary standards.”

The Good Food Guide’s annual Top 50 restaurant ranking is highly regarded by chefs and restaurant-goers alike, with particular attention paid to those chefs and restaurants who make it into the top ten.
