Wall of Shame

A huge amount of work goes into collating and managing the data you see on Leading Restaurants. Whilst we have no issue with other websites referencing content on our site, we do expect them to do the decent thing and credit us, after all, we did all the hard work! The sites below have unfortunately failed to do this...

Frank Davie / The Staff Canteen

Chef Frank Davie produced a piece on Michelin Stars versus AA Rosettes for his own blog and also The Staff Canteen. He was widely panned at the time for posting misinformation, but by far the worst thing about his post was that he lifted a significant amount of data from our site without giving us any credit whatsoever. Poor form!

Chef Associates

In response to the above post, Chef Associates posted a (not entirely accurate) rebuttal on their blog and yes, you've guessed it, they too lifted restaurant award data straight from our site without giving us any credit whatsoever.

Britain's Finest

On their little page featuring some AA Rosette awarded restaurants (here), the Britain's Finest site lifted, word for word, the copy from the top of our list of all AA rosette awarded restaurants in the UK. Whilst mildly flattering, this is very disappointing to see from another site in a similar space. Shame on them!
