Amethyst wins prestigious four AA rosettes at 2023 AA Rosette Awards

Amethyst in London (pictured) was the only restaurant to receive four AA rosettes at the 2023 AA Rosette Awards on 28 February.

It also marked the highest honour at this year's ceremony, as no restaurant qualified for the highest award of five AA rosettes.

Fourteen restaurants were granted three AA rosettes.

Recipients of three AA rosettes included One Devonshire Gardens by Hotel du Vin in Scotland; Upstairs by Tom Shepherd in the West Midlands; Home by James Sommerin in Wales; and Karrek, St Enodoc hotel in Cornwall.

Simon Numphud, managing director at AA Hotel & Hospitality Services, which operates the AA quality assessment schemes, said: "This year we've seen an exceptional level of culinary excellence demonstrated by those receiving our coveted three and four AA rosettes.

"I'm constantly inspired by the resilience, innovation and quality demonstrated by these trailblazers in our industry. Congratulations to the chefs and front of house teams who have helped make their rosette awards possible."
