The latest announcement by the AA also saw 15 restaurants awarded three rosettes including Prévost @ the Haycock in Cumbria; The Nut Tree Inn in Oxfordshire; and The Camellia Restaurant at South Lodge in West Sussex.
Outside of England, Dean Banks at The Pompadour, which launched in Edinburgh last year, also received three rosettes; as did the Michelin-starred Bohemia Restaurant in St Helier, Jersey.
“We are delighted to recognise those restaurants that are achieving the highest levels of gastronomic excellence in our country,” says Simon Numphud, managing director at AA Media
“Congratulations to all those working at these establishments, who continue to show the breadth and quality of the British culinary landscape.”
Now in its 66th year, AA Rosettes have been awarded to restaurants since 1956, with the top award of five Rosettes being introduced in 1991. The allocation of multi-Rosettes is determined by one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant.
Establishments with three AA Rosettes are all outstanding restaurants achieving standards which demand national recognition well beyond their local area, while those awarded four AA Rosettes are considered among the top restaurants in the country.
