A SEAFRONT restaurant is celebrating a double whammy after receiving a mention in the latest Which Good Food Guide and an AA rosette.

The Cove Restaurant, in Birnbeck Road, has an entry in the AA Restaurant Guide as a result of being awarded the prestigious rosette.

The accolade is given to restaurants by the British Automobile Association for the quality and service of food, which demonstrate mastery and excellence in their field.
