“We are delighted to achieve our second Rosette having retained our one Rosette award for the last 4 years. We set the goal to get our second Rosette because myself and the team have always wanted to take our food quality and presentation to a higher level. We are proud to receive this award that confirms we have achieved this goal. It has been a great journey and everyone has enjoyed being part of it.”
About the AA Rosette
The long-established Rosette scheme recognises successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Success in achieving Rosettes is based on one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant and are solely awarded by AA Hotel and Restaurant Inspectors. The AA Restaurant Guide define the award of Two Rosettes to: “Excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency. A greater precision is apparent in the cooking, and there will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients.”
