Cumbria to Claridge’s

L’Enclume’s Simon Rogan to take the helm at Claridge’s

Gordon Ramsay burnt his bridges at Claridge’s after twelve years at the helm in February this year and now, today, his replacement has been announced. Simon Rogan, whose two Michelin starred L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, will take the helm from spring 2014 and “lead the way for a new dining direction” at a hotel that is often referred to as an “annexe to Buckingham Palace”.

In a statement, Southampton born Rogan, who is well known for his modern British cooking style and love of indigenous produce sourced from his own Cumbrian farm, commented:

 

“I have long been looking for a permanent London home and in Claridge’s I feel we have found a true partnership of creativity and world class excellence. My team and I are looking forward to the challenge of marrying my culinary style with the phenomenal heritage of Claridge’s – this is a massive honour and we are focused and determined to create a truly outstanding restaurant”.

 

Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume was recently voted the ‘Best Restaurnat in the UK’ by the Good Food Guide 2014. Our man The Tout will undoubtedly be putting money on a similar award for Rogan’s Claridge’s venture in the coming year too.

    1. Good luck to him. It was a great pity that Claridge’s ever got rid of John Williams, who was a great hotel chef and a lovely bloke. Ramsay’s sojourn there was a disaster. John Williams is now executive chef at the Ritz, where the food is now excellent after many years in the doldrums.
