Dietary Requirements and Allergies

We can usually cater for most health or allergy-related dietary requirements with advance notice. Please mention any dietary requests when making a reservation so that our team has enough time to make the relevant preparations.

At Aulis Cartmel, our six-seater chef's table, we can only accommodate some dietary requirements. Should you or your guests have any, please call our reservation team before you book at +44 (0) 15395 36362.

Rooms & Suites

We have 16 bedrooms and suites located around the village of Cartmel, each designed in its own unique style while retaining references to the historic surroundings.

If you book a room, we automatically guarantee a table at L'Enclume and breakfast at our sister restaurant Rogan & Co. Please note that this does not apply to Rogan & Co. package bookings in double rooms. The room rate does not include the cost of dinner at L’Enclume. We have a limited ​number of rooms available each month and only have packages for Rogan & Co. To book a room or a package please book online.

We are unable to accommodate dogs in our restaurant or rooms. Our Rooms are located in different areas of the village and are all a short walk to the restaurants. There are three different room categories to choose from. Check in is from 4pm. Check out at 11am.

Our Farm & Sustainability

Our Farm is set in the Cartmel Valley, only a mile or so from the village itself. We use year-round growing methods at the farm, which allow us the flexibility and productivity to ensure that our restaurant menus continue to evolve with every season.

By growing ourselves, we can better understand and control the ingredients we use. We aim to grow near-perfect produce naturally and sustainably.

Our growers and chefs work side-by-side to create the ingredients used in all our restaurants. Our farm is an extension of our kitchens, applying the same ethos, drive and attention to detail.

Our Farm tours are available on request. Please let us know when you book your table with us.
