Aulis at Fera, Claridge’s

I’ve been a fan of Simon Rogan’s food ever since a trip to L’Enclume in Cumbria. The never ending tasting menu was exciting and unusual. Since Fera replaced the Gordon Ramsay restaurant at Claridge’s, I’ve had some equally impressive meals, so was excited to hear of the introduction of Aulis. It’s a kitchen within the kitchen, where guests sit at comfy stools round a counter, … Continue reading Aulis at Fera, Claridge’s

Simon Rogan’s Fera at Claridge’s

I first visited Simon Rogan’s restaurant Fera in Claridge’s (he also owns SR at The French and L’Enclume) back when it first opened and I loved everything about it. I was excited to return for lunch to see if it was just as wonderful and it really was.

Simon Rogan’s Fera at Claridge’s

Fera at Claridge’s is the hotel’s brand spanking new restaurant by Simon Rogan – his first London venture since the very successful “pop-up” Roganic in Marylebone.

Fera (which means ‘wild’ in Latin) has replaced the old Gordon Ramsay restaurant and what a transformation it is. The … Continue reading Simon Rogan’s Fera at Claridge’s

The French by Simon Rogan

The French is situated inside The Midland which is arguably Manchester’s finest hotel – I don’t think there’s much competition though!

Originally a rather stuffy traditional French restaurant complete with white tablecloths, the dining room had been given the Rogan … Continue reading The French by Simon Rogan


L’Enclume is a two Michelin star restaurant which resides in a little medieval village called Cartmel in the Lake District. Owner Simon Rogan (who also owns Roganic in London) is known to many as the chef who cooked his dessert at the final banquet on BBC’s Great British Menu. The restaurant has plenty of character and blends modern dining furniture with old fashioned exposed beams … Continue reading L’Enclume

Roganic, Marylebone

Roganic is a two year pop-up restaurant (if such a thing exists) from Simon Rogan who owns one Michelin starred L’Enclume in Cumbria. Simon shot to even higher fame when he took part in BBC’s Great British Menu where he won the dessert round and cooked it at the final banquet. The restaurant itself was small and very simple. The walls were either white or … Continue reading Roganic, Marylebone
