the north-east with two or more AA Rosette


Established in 1956, the purpose of the rosettes are to assess the quality of food served by restaurants and hotels.

A number in the north-east have received commendations and here we are focusing on those given two or more rosettes.

According to the AA Restaurant Guide, success or failure in achieving rosettes is based on one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant.

Around 10% of restaurants nationwide are of a standard that is worthy of one rosette and above. Two rosettes are deemed excellent and three outstanding. Four and five are the pinnacle.

Douneside House – Aboyne, Aberdeenshire

3 Rosettes

This stunning country house is one of the most elegant dining venues in the north-east.

Set in the The MacRobert Estate in the Scottish Highlands, Douneside House is full of history and character, and is hands down one of the best places to eat out in the area.

There are two dining rooms at the venue, one being the conservatory and the other is the library where 12 lucky guests can dine from the six-course tasting menu.

Head chef Victor Navarro and his team take guests on a culinary journey while highlighting the exquisite local larder. They also use home-grown produce within the kitchen from the hotel’s garden where more than 80 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown.

There’s also Dining Club events for those interested in luxurious food and drink experiences.

This is the sixth consecutive year they have retained three rosettes.

Address: Tarland, Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, AB34 4UL
