Less than eight weeks after opening its doors, the Aiden
British Grill restaurant in Ledsham near Chester has achieved
coveted 2AA Rosette status.
Byrne's third restaurant, set within Cheshire's serene setting
of Cheshire's 4-star, 72 bedroom Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel
, offers diners a taste of the 'Aiden Byrne British Grill' concept,
a style of cooking first developed at the renowned chefs Church
Green (Lymm) and Collingwood (West Kirkby) restaurants.
The award of 2AA Rosettes just weeks after opening firmly
underlines the quality of the dining experience at Aiden Byrne's
120-cover restaurant. It also reflects well upon the UK's largest
privately owned hotel group where every restaurant within the 4 and

and highest quality produce to its discerning business, conference

Macdonald Hotels is a self-styled industry leader in the hotel
dining market and now boasts over 40 AA Rosettes across its
national restaurant collection.
Reflecting on his latest culinary accolade, Byrne said: "Whether
enjoying a succulent rack of Texal lamb, classic fish pie or a
ploughman's platter, the Aiden Byrne British Grill at the Macdonald
Craxton Wood offers diners the opportunity to truly relax and
savour dishes that epitomise the fabulous and traditional taste of
Byrne, whose dynamic cooking ethos has been showcased on TV
programmes including Master Chef, Saturday Kitchen and the Great
British Menu, added: "I am very proud to see the restaurant
achieve 2AA Rosette standard within such a short period of time and
it's in no small part testament to the professionalism and passion

Resorts, added: "Macdonald Hotels is very proud of the fact we
promise our discerning guests the freshest and highest quality of
produce in our restaurants."

quality. Aiden is a terrific asset to the Manchester Craxton Wood
Hotel and his presence reinforces our belief that as part of
delivering further added value for guests, there are locations
within the Macdonald Hotel group that lend themselves well to
establishing successful joint ventures with some of the nation's
