A Norwich hotel which claims to be the oldest in the country is celebrating after being awarded two prestigious rosettes for its food.
The Maids Head Hotel, on Tombland, racked up its second AA Rosette for its WinePress restaurant after an unannounced inspection.
Meanwhile, its overall four star merit score – which covers areas including service and bedrooms – increased from 78pc last year to 81pc this year.
Christine Malcolm, general manager, said: 'We are thrilled with the award of a second AA rosette for our restaurant.
'Head Chef Marcin 'Magic' Pomierny and his brigade, supported by food services manager Katherine Renhard and her team, work very hard to design and deliver exciting, seasonally changing menus, using the best of local and regional produce.'

The hotel's programme of renovation and refurbishment is superb, focussing on the expectations of today's visitors, but at the same time emphasising the amazing heritage of the site, serving Norwich for more than 800 years.'
