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

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.

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
