The Timothy Taylor owned Town Hall Tavern, Leeds has been awarded an AA Rosette for the quality of its food and thereby joins the top 10% of the country's restaurants and eateries and becomes the only gastro pub in Leeds to hold the coveted award.
To gain a rosette a restaurant has to achieve standards that stand out in their local area by serving food prepared with care, understanding and skill, using good quality ingredients. Diners, say the AA, can be expected to eat with confidence and a sense of anticipation.
Commenting on this latest accolade Group Food Manager Adrian Sykes said: "Manager Astrid Pot and Head Chef Anton Scoones and his team are to be congratulated on achieving this award. Since being totally refurbished last year the Town Hall Tavern has gained a reputation for serving excellent modern British food in relaxed contemporary surroundings."
Timothy Taylor Operations Manager Marc Craddock commented "All food is freshly prepared in-house by Anton and his talented brigade of chefs. Yorkshire is a county with outstanding local produce and this is reflected in the menus that change seasonally, enabling the use of ingredients when they are at their best."
The Town Hall Tavern is the second Timothy Taylor pub to gain a rosette, joining The Royal Oak, Ripon which picked up the accolade in 2010. It also follows on from the city centre pub picking up Best Lunch at the Evening Post Oliver Awards.
Adrian Sykes added " Both these awards, once again, demonstrate Taylor`s commitment to offering our customers a first class dining experience. Whilst the focus is very much on food we are equally dedicated to upholding the traditions of the great English pub."
Food at the Town Hall Tavern is served Monday to Saturday 11.30am to 9pm and Sunday 12.30pm to 4.30pm.
