Here at The Dining Room we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a coveted AA Rosette.

imageAccording to the AA the ‘long-established AA Rosette scheme recognises successful cooking at various different levels across the UK.

About 10% of restaurants nationwide are of a standard that is worthy of One Rosette and above. This is indeed a huge achievement, and not to be underestimated.’

We opened The Dining Room in April 2010 with the aim of creating a contemporary British bistro which would combine a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere with a high standard of food.

Our ever changing menu features chef/owner Si’s often quirky takes on British classics and places an emphasis on fish due to the restaurant’s location in the beautiful seaside village of Abersoch.

On being awarded a Rosette Si said,

‘I’m thrilled. The inspector actually visited on my birthday and getting a Rosette was certainly the best present I had this year!’

‘I spend a lot of time planning menus as we change our dishes weekly to reflect what’s in season. We always aim to use the best local produce available and, obviously as we are by the sea, we serve a lot of fish. We get great feedback from our customers and we have a lot of local regulars which must be a sign that we’re doing something right! But it’s absolutely amazing to have this kind of recognition, particularly as we’re such a small restaurant.’

‘Myself, Jo and our brilliant floor staff Emma and Rhea would like to say a massive thank you to all our lovely customers and we hope you’ll continue to support us.’
