Burlington Restaurant awarded four AA rosettes

The Burlington Restaurant in Bolton Abbey was the big winner in the AA’s latest round of inspections after it was awarded four rosettes.
The establishment at the Devonshire Arms Hotel was the only restaurant to walk away with four new rosettes, but a further 21 were handed three rosettes.
Explaining its criteria, the AA said that the Burlington was rewarded for its “intense ambition, a passion for excellence, superb technical skills and an appreciation of culinary traditions combined with a desire for exploration and improvement”.
The restaurant, based in the Yorkshire Dales near Skipton and led by Head Chef Adam Smith, offers an informal brasserie area with a menu of modern classics as well as a chandeliered dining room.
London’s dining scene was home to 11 new three rosette restaurants with the awards going to Michelin-starred Chef Simon Rogan’s Fera at Claridge’s, Canvas by Michael Riemenschneider, Jason Atherton’s Little Social, City Social, London House, The Five Fields, The Goring, Merchants Tavern, New Angel, Typing Room and Rivea at the Bulgari Hotel and Residences.
Outside of London, Kenny Atkinson’s House of Tides in Newcastle was given the same accolade, as were Swinfen Hall in Lichfield, Hampton Manor in Solihull, The Lord Clyde in Macclesfield, Storrs Hall in Windermere, The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Gravetye Manor in Turners Hill, Fonab Castle Hotel in Pitlochry, Tiroran House Hotel in the Isle of Mull and Timberyard in Edinburgh, which was also handed the title of AA’s Restaurant of the Year for Scotland.
