Consistently ranked among the country’s best restaurants and flaunting two Michelin stars, L’Enclume is set in a former wheel-makers and smithy, hence the anvil symbol you’ll see smattered about the place. Chef-owner Simon Rogan was among the first in the modern British food scene to create menus revolving around local sourcing and foraging, and today much of the restaurant’s produce comes from its nearby 12-acre garden. The tasting menus don’t come cheap, but are well worth it if you’re marking a special occasion. For a more affordable but no less epicurean experience, opt for a set lunch at Rogan and Co., a two-minute walk around the corner. L’Enclume has several guest rooms available to book.
