22 restaurants which have been deemed as outstanding by the AA have been awarded its coveted three and four Rosettes; 11 of the establishments are based in London and three in Scotland.
The long-established Rosette scheme recognises successful cooking at different levels across the UK with hotels receiving the awards demanding recognition well beyond the local area.
Just one restaurant is being awarded the prestigious four Rosettes – The Burlington Restaurant, Bolton Abbey. This award shows intense ambition, a passion for excellence, superb technical skills and an appreciation of culinary traditions combined with a desire for exploration and improvement.
