Boutique hotel operator Leeu Collection has appointed Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan to run the Henrock restaurant at its Linthwaite House hotel, when it opens in October.
The kitchen team will be led by head chef Brian Limoges, who joins Rogan from San Francisco after working at restaurants including Quince, Birdsong and Atelier Crenn. Rogan opened his first restaurant in 2002, L’Enclume in Cartmel in The Lake District which has since received two Michelin-stars.
The menu will include small sharing plates, with signatures set to include: raw aged beef, elderberry and shiso, halibut baked in cabbage leaf, bay shrimp and pink pepper, and fried apple pie, miso butterscotch and cassia clotted cream.
Rogan said: “Since opening L’Enclume in 2002, it’s been a hugely exciting and humbling journey. Today, we have five UK restaurants holding four Michelin Stars amongst them, and have recently opened Roganic and Aulis Hong Kong.
“It feels like the right time to be strengthening our offering in the North of the UK, a place we call home, with a fantastic team in place and in such a truly unique and stunning setting.”
Analjit Singh, founder of the Leeu Collection, added: “I am thrilled that Leeu Collection will be working closely with Simon and the whole team at Umbel going forward. We share many similar values and, I feel, by aligning our brands, we can elevate the experience at Linthwaite House to a unique level and a cut above other offerings in the area.”
