Guides: AA 2016 – The demotions, suspensions & deletions

There are a number of reasons why a restaurant maybe demoted or deleted in a restaurant guide. Closure, change of chef or just general uncertainty, can all make the guides a bit twitchy. In the AA 2016 Restaurant guide there appear to 18 deletions from the top 10%, that I’ve been able to work out.
