Located on the outskirts of Durham, Wynyard Hall’s Wellington Restaurant has built up a reputation with food lovers across the region for its locally sourced fare.
Wellington Restaurant achieved two rosettes shortly after the appointment of executive head chef Alan O’Kane in 2011. Now, just 15 months later, the restaurant has achieved a third.
“My team and I are thrilled to receive this esteemed award recognising all the hours we have put into experimenting with flavours and textures to ensure we create delicious and innovative dishes for our guests,” O’Kane remarked.
With the award of a third rosette, Wellington Restaurant is now rated among the top 10 per cent of the country’s restaurants.
General manager at Wynyard Hall Adam Dyke remarked: “In the past, Wynyard Hall has predominantly been known for welcoming wedding guests. Moving forward, we are all excited about reaching out to food lovers across the region to sample our award winning menus in the Wellington Restaurant, making Wynyard Hall a food destination in its own right. I am delighted that the team have been recognised in this achievement, but we won’t stop at three, we will keep pushing to improve and achieve more.”
