The restaurant at the 21-bedroom hotel, in Chaddesley Corbett near Kidderminster, has been awarded three AA Rosettes in the 2014 AA Restaurant Guide – one of the organisation’s most prestigious accolades for food, with just 10% of the restaurants listed in the Guide holding three Rosettes and above.
Brockencote Hall has also won AA Inspectors’ Choice / 4 Red Stars for accommodation. The AA identifies the highest performing hotels in Britain as the Inspectors’ Choice, denoted by Red Stars. This is the supreme honour, used to recognise hotels that stand out as the very best.
Brockencote Hall is part of the Eden Hotel Collection, seven upmarket boutique hotels located across the Midlands, the Cotswolds and the South West.
In July 2011 Eden bought Brockencote Hall and its 70 acres of leafy parkland from private owners who had spent years converting the Victorian mansion into a hotel. It closed for a six-week refurbishment, with a total investment approaching £6m.
General manager Dean Gunston said: “The team at Brockencote Hall are absolutely delighted to have won these AA awards. Since reopening last year, our aim has been to restore Brockencote Hall to its former glory and create a classic, high-end dining and accommodation destination for both local residents and visitors to the county.”
For head chef Adam Brown, winning three AA Rosettes is a personal triumph. He brings considerable experience to the job, having worked in sister hotel Mallory Court’s Michelin-starred restaurant as well as Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.
He says: “Food is at the heart of the Eden Hotel Collection and at Brockencote Hall we are always looking at exciting new combinations and innovative techniques. We firmly believe in seasonality and provenance and source the finest ingredients from our well-stocked kitchen gardens and bee hives as well as from local suppliers.”
The next challenge for Adam Brown is defending his title in the Battle of Eden competition in October, when the group’s seven head chefs compete to win over the hearts, stomachs and votes of their guests for the honour of being crowned top chef.
The AA awards cap an amazing 2013 for Brockencote Hall. After winning Hotel of the Year at the Worcestershire Welcome Awards, followed by Adam Brown scooping Visionary Chef of the Year with Visionary Dining, the hotel recently received a Highly Commended in the Visit England 2013 Awards for ‘Small Hotel of the Year’.
