The AA have released their Restaurant Guide for 2023, with a number of restaurants from across Dorset featuring. I have already eaten at quite a few but consider it a personal challenge to eat at the rest before the next guide is released.
See who features below:
Restaurants from Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Bridport, Lyme Regis, Sherborne, Studland and more were included.
Now in its 29th edition, AA's Restaurant Guide for 2023 provides food lovers with breakdowns of restaurants by county, including a detailed description of each destination, information on latest chef changes, opening times, sample menu prices and images of many of the featured locations.
Assessments of AA-inspected establishments are based on the experience of the Hotel and Restaurant inspectors on the occasion.
The restaurants are then awarded 1-5 ‘rosettes’ depending on the inspectors assessment.
Dorset Restaurants included in AA's 2023 Restaurant Guide
Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa, Evershot
The Grade II listed manor house hosts a hotel and spa as well as a restaurant, with local fish being described as a "particular strength" of the kitchen.
Dishes like tandoori-dusted hake fillet with sag aloo and lobster curry sauce come highly recommended by the AA.
