Summary

“Everything you would expect from Simon Rogan without splashing out at L’Enclume” – this spin-off brasserie near the mothership enjoys a similar “pretty and romantic village setting” and achieved much more consistent ratings this year (in which it also achieved its Michelin star). “Local ingredients are enhanced with delicate and unusual herbs”“it’s a great place to eat and be merry anytime: after a walk, after shopping, after the races or just simply because!”

Summary

“Michelin star standards at bistro prices” inspires some hugely enthusiastic reviews for Simon Rogan’s brasserie spin-off near the main HQ, with fans noting “excellent, balanced and indulgent small dishes with some remarkably bright flavours”. It provoked descriptions of almost as many ‘bad trips’ though, with naysayers dissing a variety of shortcomings including “overbearing service (never mind ‘too many cooks’, this was definitely a case of ‘too many waiters/waitresses)” and “poor execution”.

Summary

“Rogan at accessible prices” is the aim of this “small and intimate” brasserie, near the mothership. The feeling lingers that “it used to be great, but has got a few things to work on to hit its original level” (and is “underwhelming if you compare it to L’Enclume”). That said, “for the same price as an ordinary meal in a Lakeland pub you get interesting and delicious food”.

Summary

Is Simon Rogan spending less time in Cartmel? – this previously formidable brasserie spin-off inspired much more criticism this year. Many reports do still acclaim its “lovely”, “different” cooking, but there’s a strong sense that “it used to be better, and is becoming very expensive for the type of food served”.
