The Good Food Guide unveils the UK’s top 50 restaurants

1. L’Enclume

Location: Cumbria

Cooking score: 10

Chef proprietor: Simon Rogan

Back in at number one is Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume, based in the historic and picturesque village of Cartmel. Rogan has regained the crown after coming top in the 2017 edition of the guide.

Of L’Enclume, Elizabeth Carter, editor of The Good Food Guide, said: “There was very strong competition among the top-scoring restaurants this year, but there was no ignoring the fact that L’Enclume is a really extraordinary restaurant, once again topping the bill after a two-year sojourn in second place. It dazzles; not with glitter-ball ritz and razzmatazz, but with the understated glow that comes from being indisputably world-class.”

On leading the top 50, chef Simon Rogan added: “I couldn’t be happier with the news that L’Enclume has returned to the No.1 spot in The Good Food Guide. It is a huge achievement which we have worked exceedingly hard towards, and I am very proud of my team who have made it possible. I am privileged to work alongside such talented individuals, and making the number one spot again has only fuelled our collective determination to get better and better.”
