Two Rosette

Its official our new Chef - John Wilson (no relation) has done what no other Chef working here has done - won a prestigious second rosette for our restaurant - well done John. The AA says two rosettes mean
'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.'
