North West Food Highlight – Rogan & Company

Feb 18, 2016 | #BirchallsBritain, Birchall Live


At Birchall we pride ourselves on delivering teas of exceptional quality and flavor. Only the best ingredients and production techniques are used to create our blends. It was these great values that we were looking for when selecting the restaurants to feature in our food and drink guide for the North West.

Our third featured restaurant, Rogan & company  has those values at its heart. Sourcing the best local produce from their 12-acre natural farm and a dedication to creating dishes of great flavor, it truly is a food and drink highlight the region, we urge you to give it a try.

Rogan & Company

Simon Rogan moved to the picturesque village of Cartmel, Cumbria, in 2002 to set up L’Enclume, and in 2008, he opened Rogan & Company, his second restaurant in the village. Rogan & Company features Simon’s signature contemporary cooking style in a more informal setting. Vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers are supplied from Simon’s 12-acre natural farm, just outside Cartmel. The Head Chef is Ashley Bennett, who works closely with Simon and the L’Enclume team.
