The best restaurants in the UK have been revealed. AA Rosettes have been given out since 1956 to the best restaurants in the country.

Recognising “the highest culinary standards in the UK”, AA Rosettes are a sought-after recognition for restaurants all over the country.

Last week, AA named its 2021 winners in a virtual ceremony.

Receiving four Rosettes is an acknowledgement of a restaurant being one of the top establishments in the country.

Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said: “As the hospitality sector reopens after a challenging year, it is an honour to be able to recognise those restaurants achieving the highest levels of gastronomic excellence.

“All 2021 Rosette winners deserve to be celebrated, with each one demonstrating the exceptional culinary standards being offered to diners across the country.”
