5 Best Restaurants in the Southern Lakes

One of the best places to visit in the Lakes is Cartmel.  Not only have you a Medieval village, Priory, fabulous shops, cafes and a race course but you also have 2 top restaurants!

L’Enclume has just been voted THE best restaurant in the UK. It is owned by Simon Rogan.    It’s a10 minute drive from Woodside in the village of Cartmel.

Also in the village of Cartmel is Simon Rogan’s Bistro. Slightly simpler fayre than L’Enclume but still  excellent.

Next up is The Swan (our local) I particularly like the ribs…fantastic. A beautiful setting on the banks of the River Leven and a few minutes drive from Woodside or a leisurely walk through the woods.

Heft at High Newton is an excellent pub/restaurant. The burgers are great.

And finally a pub that never fails to deliver. A family run pub that was runner up in 2015 in “The friendliest pub in GB”competition. The Pheasant is in the village of Allithwaite ( 20 mins away) is run by Charlotte and her team.
