Michelin-starred Farlam Hall, near Brampton, has opened a new casual dining restaurant, Bistro Enkel.

Located in the same premises as the renowned Cedar Tree by Hrishikesh Desai, Bistro Enkel offers a simple, relaxed dining experience.

The name 'Enkel' is the Scandinavian translation of 'simple,' referencing Old Norse influences on Cumbrian dialect.

Guests can expect to dine on seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers and from the hotel's kitchen gardens. 

A spokesperson from Farlam Hall said: "This new casual dining addition operates as a bistro-style restaurant on the same premises as The Cedar Tree, offering small bites, starters, mains, sides and desserts as an itemised menu, so guests can choose as little or as much as they like. 

"Dishes include a pan-roasted fillet of seasonal fish with grilled garnish and truffle cream sauce, braised featherblade of beef, and elevated British classics such as beer-battered cod and chips, finished with an indulgent sticky toffee pudding, alongside an extensive wine list."

With numerous accolades including a Michelin Star, an AA Rosette, the title of Foodie Hotel of the Year from The Times and The Sunday Times, Farlam Hall has firmly established itself as a food and beverage destination.

The addition of Bistro Enkel caters to the surging demand to dine at Farlam Hall.

Chef patron Hrishikesh Desai and finance director Karen Baybutt, who came to Farlam Hall a year ago, desire to provide an alternative option for guests seeking simpler food and service.

Prioritising employee wellbeing, the hotel's owners and directors have ensured that Bistro Enkel operates under a different kitchen team.

This measure has been taken to maintain a healthy work-life balance for the staff.

Designed to be accessible and enjoyable for both guests and locals, Bistro Enkel operates from Sunday to Tuesday each week.

From Wednesday to Saturday, the baton is passed back to the Michelin-starred Cedar Tree by Hrishikesh Desai.
