AA Restaurant Guide 2024: 15 restaurants in and around Liverpool listed for food excellence - with new entry

All of these restaurants have received prestigious AA Rosette Awards for Culinary Excellence.

The listings for the prestigious AA Restaurant Guide 2024 have been published and Merseyside has a new entry.

The long-established AA Rosettes scheme celebrates successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Awarded by the AA’s team of inspectors, receiving this award is a significant achievement in the industry and rosettes range from one to five.

Eateries that achieve one rosette have ‘standards that stand out in their local area’ with around 50% of rosette holders achieving one. At the other end of the scale, restaurants that are awarded five rosettes, feature cooking that is ‘on par with the best in the world.’

Andrew Sheridan’s immersive eatery ‘8’ joined the latest list of entries for Merseyside after securing a three rosette rating at a prestigious awards ceremony in London in September. Owner and chef Sheridan relocated from Birmingham to his home city of Liverpool in April.

Sadly, the region has also lost two rosette holders from the 2023 guide, with Mustard & Co in Crosby and Lerpwl on the Albert Dock closing their doors for good.

Below are all the restaurants in and around Merseyside to receive AA Rosette Awards for Culinary Excellence for 2024, listed in alphabetical order.
