Two restaurants have been awarded four AA Rosettes, while a further fifteen have been awarded three AA Rosettes including four in Scotland.

Establishments with three AA Rosettes are all outstanding restaurants achieving standards which demand national recognition well beyond their local area, while those awarded four AA Rosettes are considered among the top restaurants in the country.

Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said: “We are delighted to recognise those restaurants that are achieving the highest levels of gastronomic excellence in our country.

"Congratulations to all those working at these establishments, who continue to show the breadth and quality of the British culinary landscape.”

The four restaurants which now have three AA Rosettes are: Dean Banks at The Pompadour in Edinburgh; Tamburrini & Wishart, Balloch, West Dunbartonshire; The Auldgirth Inn, Dumfries, Dumfries & Galloway and The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant, Crieff, Perth & Kinross.
