A popular Isle of Wight pub has been awarded an AA rosette for culinary excellence.

The owners and staff of The Boathouse in Seaview are thrilled to make the announcement following an over-night stay by an AA inspector.

The Island establishment was also awarded a silver four-star inn rating for accommodation.

“This incredible honour reflects our commitment to delivering exceptional dining and our dedication to quality in every dish we serve,” said Joel Yearsley, executive chef.

“The AA Rosette is a testament to our team's hard work, passion, and creativity.

“It signifies our dedication to using the finest ingredients, innovative cooking techniques, and providing outstanding service to all our valued customers.

"Receiving the AA Rosette is a dream come true for us.

“It validates the countless hours we've put into perfecting our craft and constantly striving to offer our guests nothing but the best.

“Thank you to our incredible team and loyal customers for making this achievement possible!"

The AA rosette is further recognition for The Boathouse, which UK Good Pub Guide previously named Isle of Wight dining pub of the year.

The Seaview pub is open every day from 9am.
