Burley Manor’s Mediterranean inspired restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes.
The prestigious accolades were given following a visit earlier this year by the AA inspectors, who were said to be impressed by executive head chef Ben Johnson’s “innovative” dishes and “exciting flavours”.
Over the past year the restaurant has seen the introduction of the Butler’s Pantry, Slow Food initiative, and Burley’s inaugural dedicated food festival, the Summer Garden Party, taking place in August 2019.
The Mediterranean menu combines fresh, seasonal and foraged ingredients.
Ben Johnson said: “We are delighted with our recent inspection result from the AA, who recognized our well deserving inhouse team for their culinary excellence.
“At Burley Manor we ensure our menus encapsulate great flavours, variety and personality and with this fantastic result from AA, our chefs will continue to grow their culinary offerings and produce memorable dishes at our restaurant and rooms in the New Forest.”
