Beginning in 1955, the AA rating has remained one of the most well-respected and comprehensive guides across the UK and describes itself as “The pinnacle where cooking compares with the best in the world. These restaurants have highly individual voices, exhibit breathtaking culinary skills and set standards to which others aspire, yet few achieve.”
As it stands, Lympstone Manor is the only establishment in the South West that holds this prestigious accolade, and only 16 other venues across the UK have attained 5 AA Rosettes this year.
Michael is immensely proud of this incredible achievement, saying: “The AA was the first nationwide organisation to hand out awards in recognition of the quality of food and the quality of service in the UK. For more than 75 years they have consistently been independent and objective standard bearers who have helped diners to find and enjoy the best restaurants in the country, at all levels. I am absolutely delighted to achieve the highest accolade, 5 AA Rosettes, for the fourth year in a row. It is a recognition of not just the hard work of my entire team but also a recognition of our consistency as well as creativity. I congratulate all AA Rosette holders, whether 1 Rosette or 5. It is an important industry achievement that we celebrate.”
We’d like to thank everyone who has continued to support the Manor and congratulate those in the industry who have retained rosettes, gained rosettes and achieved recognition for their passion and dedication.
