AA Guide Changes - 12/11/2014

Unlike many other UK and Ireland food guides, the AA Guide is constantly updated throughout the year. The AA Guide restaurant changes from around 12/11/2014 are detailed below. We list both increases and decreases in AA Rosette awards, as well as complete removals from the AA Guide.

The AA continually inspects restaurants throughout the year. A restaurant can be awarded one or two AA Rosettes at any time, however three and four Rosettes are only awarded twice a year, and five Rosettes only once per year. The above table lists the restaurants that were awarded more AA Rosettes around the date specified.


AA Rosettes Decreased

The White Oak Cookham AA RosetteAA Rosette AA Rosette
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

Name Location Old Award New Award
Fallowfields Hotel and Restaurant Kingston Bagpuize AA RosetteAA RosetteAA Rosette -
Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester - Five Lakes Maldon 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
Garrack Hotel and Restaurant St Ives AA Rosette -
Catch 22 Restaurant Tolleshunt Knights AA Rosette -
Ampersand Hotel London 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.
