Fine-dining restaurant The Boat Inn has received a third AA rosette.

The award is only given to “outstanding restaurants that achieve standards that demand recognition well beyond their local area”. 

During their visit the AA inspectors look for cooking that is underpinned by the selection and sympathetic treatment of the highest quality ingredients alongside intuitive service and a well-chosen wine list.

The restaurant, based on Walsall Road, is also listed in the 2020 Michelin guide. 

General manager, Steve Locklin MIH, said: “It is a huge honour to receive this award from the AA. 

"We are now the only restaurant in Staffordshire to currently hold three AA Rosettes and that is something that we are immensely proud of. The hard work continues now to maintain this standard and look to push on to the next level."

During the current lockdown, The Boat Inn has launched a new initiative entitled ‘Liam’s Fried Chicken’.
