SquareMeal Review of Rogan & Co

Silver Award

More casual than sister restaurant L’Enclume, and awarded its first Michelin star in 2018, Simon Rogan’s neighbourhood eatery in Cartmel offers high-end comfort food with a laidback vibe. Rogan & Co showcases the style and techniques that the chef has become known for whilst using local Lake District produce as well as some from further afield.

The à la carte menu features dishes made with carefully sourced ingredients from trusted growers in the region, some of which are nurtured on Rogan’s farm in the Cartmel Valley. Our lamb croquettes were crisp and golden, served with ramson. A rich, smooth velouté of pumpkin and lovage was laced with flavours of autumn including Cox apple and chestnut. Roasted Valley mallard, perfectly pink and gamey, came with Riesling cabbage, quince and roasted celeriac. A side of roasted new potatoes with hazelnut and fragrant rosemary was simply delicious.

With mains coming in at around the £24 mark, this isn’t a cheap spot, but it makes a lovely place for a celebration or special date and we think given the quality of the food, style of cooking, and relaxing atmosphere it’s not poor value.

Desserts are elegant yet comforting. We enjoyed a creamy baked cheesecake with lightly spiced pineapple poached at 40 degrees until delightfully sweet and tender, and a rich, indulgent dark chocolate fondant, gooey within and topped with apple marigold custard foam.

A hearty yet refined Sunday lunch menu offers the likes of roasted skate wing, confit lamb shoulder, pork belly or beef short rib, while a regularly changing weekday set-lunch menu offers superb value for money. Service is friendly, and the wine list offers a sound choice from around the globe. A local gem that draws a nationwide crowd.

Tables do get booked up early, so we’d advise calling ahead to secure your spot.

This is where L’Enclume serve breakfast, and as one would expect it is very good. Superbly prepared fresh fruit salad importantly served at peak ripeness with a wide variety of fruits and a separate pot of yoghurt lightly flavoured with vanilla alongside. Full English breakfast, cooked properly and served neatly provides a good start to the day – there are other choices. The evening we dined here, the food was not as good as expected : 1) The scallop and pea soup dish was cooked correctly but a little more soup and a few more peas would have suited me. I like hot food to be served hot, but both seafood and soup were not warm enough. 2) Partner’s starter was a treat and his main course was good. 3) My main was unremarkable and the celeriac over-powered the fish, whilst the flavour of crab in the crispy coating seemed to dissipate rapidly as did the crisp texture. 4) Wine was very good; dessert not ordered 5) Service was let down by one member of staff who seemed to think that under Simon Rogan's name a restaurant is beyond criticisim. What this young man needs to remember is that a chef is only ever as good as the last meal he cooks. His attitude was wrong and he completely lacked grace – in his view the customer could not be right and then deserves to be overlooked. Hardly an attitude which would impress. The girls and the other male staff member were polite, efficient and much better trained.
