UK: Linthwaite House in the Lake District will open a new restaurant by chef Simon Rogan in October.

The 30-bedroom hotel, part of the Leeu Collection, will open the restaurant, called Henrock, which will feature a menu based on the influences, techniques and produce discovered on Rogan's travels around the globe.

Henrock's kitchen will be led by head chef Brian Limoges, who joins from San Francisco after working in restaurants such as Quince, Birdsong and Atelier Crenn. The restaurant will source produce from Rogan's farm, which is less than a 30-minute drive from Linthwaite House.

The restaurant is named after Hen Rock, a rocky outcrop protruding from Windermere that is visible from the terrace of Linthwaite House.

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, said: "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."

Linthwaite House was acquired by Leeu Collection in 2016 and has since undergone a £10 million renovation.
