Simon Rogan To Open Henrock This October

Opening this October, Simon Rogan’s latest Lake District restaurant will feature a menu filled with natural dishes that pay homage to the surrounding scenery

Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan will be adding to his impressive portfolio with the opening of Henrock in the heart of the scenic Lake District.


The restaurant will be found at the recently renovated Linthwaite House, Leeu Collection’s contemporary country house hotel.

Rogan’s fourth restaurant, menus will showcase natural, seasonal ingredients in a relaxed and elegant setting.


An enchanting 36-bedroom boutique hotel set within 14 acres of landscaped gardens, Linthwaite House makes the luxury location for such a locally-sourced offering.

The venue takes its name from Hen Rock, a rocky outcrop protruding from Windermere that is often visible from the terrace of Linthwaite House.


Henrock’s kitchen team will be led by Head Chef Brian Limoges, who joins Simon from San Francisco after working in renowned restaurants such as Quince, Birdsong and Atelier Crenn.

Working together, they will utilise produce from Simon’s own farm, Our Farm, located less than a 30-minute drive from Linthwaite House.


Breaking away from tradition, Henrock will lean heavily on influences, techniques and produce discovered on the chefs’ travels around the globe. Te

The menu will comprise 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’. 


Simon Rogan told The Wordrobe: ‘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.”
