A RESTAURANT is celebrating triple success after winning a three AA Rosette award just three years after opening.

Middleton Lodge, near Richmond is launching a new Tasting menu to mark the award. AA Hospitality presented the three AA Rosettes for achieving "standards that demand recognition well beyond the local area."

Only ten per cent of restaurants in the guide get three AA's. Head chef, Gareth Rayner said: “To receive this after just three years is a fantastic achievement for the entire kitchen and front of house team. We’ve worked really hard to create a completely fresh, seasonal menu, alongside outstanding customer service, so it’s a great feeling to see such a prestigious organisation like the AA Restaurant Guide feels the same about our dishes."
