An Oxfordshire restaurant has been named among the AA rosette winners in its 2022 awards. 

The AA announced the winners during a virtual ceremony on March 2 which recognises restaurants across the UK with "the highest culinary standards".

AA Rosettes have been awarded to restaurants since 1956, with the top award of five Rosettes being introduced in 1991.

Restaurants are allocated rosettes based on at least one visit by an AA inspector.

This year's awards include two restaurants earning the outstanding four AA Rosettes, with a further fifteen being nationally recognised with three AA Rosettes.

“We are delighted to recognise those restaurants that are achieving the highest levels of gastronomic excellence in our country. Congratulations to all those working at these establishments, who continue to show the breadth and quality of the British culinary landscape," Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said.

Here is the Oxfordshire restaurant that ranked among the best in the UK.

What did the AA say?: "The Nut Tree has been home to Michael and Imogen North and their family for the last 15 years. In this time, it has become a fine pub with a reputation for great food, beer and wine.

The inspector added: "Its roots are solidly in classic cooking techniques using the best produce possible and treating the ingredients with integrity to offer balanced dishes full of flavour with a keen eye for presentation. Expect lots of local produce, including veg from the garden. You'll also find a friendly and upbeat service."
