A two-year-old Great Yarmouth hotel has cooked up a treat after its restaurant became the town's only AA two rosette restaurant.
Staff and the owners of Andover House, on Camperdown, are celebrating after they learned yesterday they had won the prestigious accolade.
About 10pc of the nation's restaurants are of a standard to receive a one rosette ranking - the lowest rating out of five.
The AA says that to gain another rosette restaurants and hotels must offer higher standards of food and better consistency and show greater precision in cooking and obvious attention to the quality and selection of ingredients.

As well as being another accolade for owners Phil and Victoria Newstead, the rosettes recognise the work of 25-year-old South African chef Patrick Moore.
Since opening, Mr Moore has prided himself on a varied menu for customers, with delicious dishes such as Thetford Forest venison, hand dived scallops deglazed with lime and veal and hot apple spring roll served with crumble.
He has also used his experiences of working in London's Millennium Hotel and Nobu and Cocoon Restaurants to create his gourmets paradise by Yarmouth seafront.
Mr Moore said: 'Since our launch in 2008 we have strived to create a restaurant like no other in Yarmouth, providing simply great food and service.
