Been lucky enough to have tried a number of restaurants with Michelin stars, but last night at L’Enclume was the best experience in terms of service and enjoying every single one of the the courses from the taster menu. Outstanding cannot recommend enough.

An amazing place to visit. The food not only tastes great, but looks amazing too. Our favourites were the whey onion and ragstone pie; the mackerel with tomato and rosehip; and the apple marigold nougatine sandwich. The only exception to the delightful meal was the...More

Jfk 44 isn’t talking sense. As for cost, it really depends on your choices, especially Wine. Just give them a call, they’re used to giving guideline prices.
