A TRIO of restaurants in the region have been added to a prestigious list after being awarded three AA Rosettes.

In the latest awards revealed this week, 26 venues nationally have received three AA Rosettes, a record number for a single announcement.

Three North Yorkshire restaurants are among them; The Pheasant at Harome, Goldsborough Hall in Harrogate and Great British Menu winner Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall in Ripon.

Simon Numphud, managing director at AA media, said “This has been an immensely difficult year for the hospitality industry, and yet restaurants across the country have continued to provide incredible dining experiences to the public despite these considerable challenges.

"The dedication and hard work of the teams behind these establishments is inspiring, particularly during this time, and we are pleased to be able to celebrate them with the announcement of these AA Rosettes.”
