Went to this restaurant for the lunch time menu as it was fully booked for the evening. It has a nice relaxed feel and the staff are attentive without being to over bearing . Food was as expected beautifully cooked and presented and it is highly recommended that the wine package is taken with the meal . This is not... More

We have just got back from lunch at l'Enclume and we loved it. As soon as you walk in you are welcomed by the staff who are warm and friendly yet professional. Loved the sealed menus... Not everything I had was my kind of flavour but all courses were beautifully prepared and presented. My favourite courses were the main of... More

We went for a delayed birthday lunch and picked the 8 course lunch and wine flight. The food was superb, the wine excellently matched and the service friendly but discrete. The staff chatted in a low key way and made you feel part of the family. We finished off with an additional course of cheese and vintage port. The whole... More

We opted for the 17 courses, with signature matching with. Then cheeses and matching wine. The food was sublime and the wine added to every course. Great ambiance and service. Managed (just) to add a cheese course (with matching wine). Would highly recommend, one nice touch that each of the chefs came out to serve their dishes.

The best meal I have had in the UK. Outstanding food, tremendous service, but not at all oppressive. Great wine list, excellent ambience, couldn't fault it.

Lovely restaurant with faultless service. Cheese board is very impressive. We had the 18 course tasting menu - loved the fact the menu was sealed and you had a choice whether to open it and know what you are eating. Great descriptions of the food which is fun and quirky. If you want a treat and are willing to pay... More

This restaurant is incredible. We visited for my girlfriend's birthday. We had the tasting menu (18 courses, thank you very much...!). Every course seemed to be better than the last. L'Enclume's reputation is well-deserved. Probably the best restaurant I've ever been to. Thanks so much!

We arrived at 7pm and left at midnight and throughout the evening we were looked after by very attentive staff who served up delicious, beautifully presented food from the taster menu. Each course was described in detail by the waiters who were able to answer any questions. As a vegetarian I was delighted that my meat eating husband and I... More
