The AA continually inspects restaurants throughout the year.

The above table lists the restaurants that were awarded more AA Rosettes around the date specified.


AA Rosettes Decreased

Any restaurant that when inspected, is no longer deemed to meet the standards of a previous AA Rosette award, can have its AA Rosettes reduced at any time. This usually comes in the form of restaurants previously holding two AA Rosettes being reduced to one. The restaurants above had their AA Rosettes reduced around the date specified.


AA Rosettes Reduced To Zero

Linthwaite House Hotel and Restaurant Windermere AA RosetteAA RosetteAA Rosette -
The Dragon Brasserie at The Dragon Hotel Swansea AA Rosette -
Restaurants that have their AA Rosettes reduced to zero still appear in the AA Guide, however they may subsequently be removed. AA Rosettes are usually reduced to zero when a change of chef or other major change takes place. Whilst a restaurant has zero AA Rosettes, it will not appear in our database (unless it also holds other awards).


Removed from AA Guide

Name Location Old Award New Award
Kelby's Restaurant at the Amber Springs Hotel Gorey AA Rosette -
The Black Lion Bar and Bistro Thirsk AA Rosette -
The above restaurants no longer appear in the AA Guide. This is most often due to restaurant closure, however the AA can remove any restaurant from their guide at any time if it no longer meets the required standards to be eligible for one or more AA Rosettes.
