PRESS RELEASE September 2022

The Chubby Castor near Peterborough has been awarded three AA Rosettes for culinary excellence, placing them in the top 10% of restaurants in the prestigious guide.

The announcement was made last night (Monday) at a glittering ceremony attended by chef patron Adebola Adeshina, along with his entire team.

Chef Ade, who has owned the Grade II listed, thatched Cambridgeshire fine dining restaurant since 2018 is passionate about creating exciting culinary experiences and has an enthusiasm for fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. His food is creative and refined ‘civilised dining’.

The whole team at The Chubby Castor champions local seasonal produce, sourced from predominantly local suppliers, as well as produce grown in their own kitchen garden, situated behind the restaurant in the pretty Cambridgeshire village.

Ade, who has worked alongside Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Philip Howard and Eric Chavot, said:

“It is an honour and a delight to be awarded three AA rosettes and I want to thank my team, from the kitchen to the front of house. This award truly reflects the hard work of each person that has contributed to the experience our diners receive.”

The long-established AA Rosette scheme celebrates successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Success or failure in achieving rosettes is based on one or more visits by an AA inspector.

Three rosettes are awarded to outstanding restaurants that achieve standards that demand recognition well beyond their local area. The cooking is underpinned by the selection and sympathetic treatment of the highest quality ingredients.

Timing, seasoning and the judgment of flavour combinations must be consistently excellent to achieve this accolade. These virtues tend to be supported by other elements, such as intuitive service and a well-chosen wine list. Only 10% of the restaurants within the AA Restaurant Guide have three rosettes and above.
