The team, led by head chef Tony Quinn, is celebrating the national win, following regional success in the South West category in 2016 and 2017.
The team was awarded the accolade at a glittering ceremony in The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow on Monday 14 August, seeing off regional winners Kingsknowes Hotel, Manor House Oban and the Airds Hotel and Restaurant.
The Rosslea Hall Hotel – managed by the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, Redefine|BDL Hotels – is well known for its locally sourced fresh produce and holds a AA Rosette.
Don McGregor, general manager of the Rosslea Hall Hotel, said: “We did it! We are over the moon that our Garden Rooms Restaurant has been recognised on the national stage by The Food Awards Scotland.
“Tony and his team were up against some fantastic Scottish hotel restaurants and to pick up the overall award for Scotland shows they really are doing something right.
“We pride ourselves on our locally sourced menus and first class service and the work continues now to try and retain in the title in 2018.”
