AA Awards – The Latest Top UK Restaurants Announced

The best hotels, restaurants and pubs across the UK were announced last night at the AA Hospitality Awards in a glittering ceremony at Grosvenor House in London.

To mark the twenty-first anniversary, this year’s awards were presented by Claudia Winkleman and honoured the best establishments in the UK across multiple categories such as Hotel of the Year, Chefs Chef, Restaurant of the Year, Pub of the Year and Wine Award. The evening also unveiled the latest 3,4 & 5 AA Rosettes, recognising successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Considering that only about 10% of restaurants nationwide reach a standard worthy of one Rosette and above, then to attain this level is a substantial achievement that should not be underestimated.

See the new awardees below, or see the full list of 3,4 & 5 AA Rosette awarded restaurants here.
