Rogan & Company Restaurant

The Square, CARTMEL, LA11 6QD

3 rosettes

After a dozen years in Cartmel Simon Rogan is heralded as one of the UK's finest chefs with restaurants in London and Manchester to spread the word. Rogan & Company may be the second-string venue in Cartmel, but it could hold its own anywhere in the country. The two-storey Lakeland house of roughcast stone and undoubted charm is surrounded by a rolling landscape divided by dry-stone walls, with Cartmel Priory an impressive backdrop. Its riverside location is a winner too. The ? la carte menu reflects Rogan's approach - although he is not at the stoves of course - and supremely good produce lies at the heart of everything (much of it from his farm down the valley). It is dynamic, contemporary stuff, but such that it allows the ingredients to win the day. Raw beef with pickled kohlrabi is a typical first course and a case of simplicity done with style, with sweet tomato jam and toast by way of accompaniments, or go for salmon marinated in dill and served on buckwheat blinis and dressed with sea herbs and beetroot sabayon. Among main courses, a stellar veggie option might be roast sweetheart cabbage with teriyaki sauce, Wiltshire truffle and hot wasabi mayonnaise, while omnivores can go for haunch of red deer with smoked potatoes, hay-baked celeriac and creamed kale. Desserts are no less enticing judging by the caramel tart which arrives with mascarpone ice cream and coffee crumb, or the fried apple pie with butterscotch and Cornish clotted cream. British and continental cheeses are kept in tip-top condition and you might want to take them up on the suggestion of an accompanying glass of Taylor's Vintage Port (1985).
