Harden's says

With sweeping views across Lake Windermere, Henrock by Simon Rogan showcases natural, perfectly seasonal ingredients in a relaxed, informal setting. The name derives from a rocky outcrop on the lake, known as Hen Rock, which is often visible from the terrace of Linthwaite House.

With sweeping views across Lake Windermere, Simon Rogan’s Lakeland dining room showcases natural, seasonal ingredients in a relaxed, informal setting. (The name derives from a rocky outcrop on the lake, known as Hen Rock, which is often visible from the terrace of the hotel). All reports acclaim a good experience here, but the cooking – led by chef Sam Fry – is not aiming to match that of Simon’s more ambitious venues and “there’s not the excitement of its parent restaurant, L’Enclume”. Most reporters seem forewarned on this score, though, finding cuisine “of the standard expected” with a good degree of imagination and very well realised.

Simon Rogan is running this October 2019 newcomer at Windermere’s extensively revamped Linthwaite House which, since 2016, has benefited from over £12m of refurbishment and expansion. Under head chef, Brian Limoges, the culinary style is much more straightforward and inexpensive than L’Enclume.

"Phenomenal flavours from amuse bouche through to “pre-dessert” - a first for me . Sunshine on the terrace topped a memorable September Sunday lunch. "
