Why has a previously recommended business been removed?

Our writers are entirely responsible for deciding which businesses to include in our guidebooks, on our website and in our apps. If a business has been listed by us previously there's no guarantee that it will be included in future products.

Omission doesn't necessarily infer that our writer believes a business is not up to the required standard for listing - due to space and time we're unfortunately unable to include every great business.

Following are some of the reasons why a writer may have decided not to include a business that was listed in the previous edition:

  • They believe that the standards have declined since their last visit
  • A change in priorities means that more pages are devoted to other areas, or other business types
  • New businesses have opened since the previous edition or others have improved their standards
  • The writer believes that a business is no longer suited to the needs of our readers
  • Verified feedback from our readers

Due to the large number of listings in all our products, I'm afraid we're unable to provide exact reasons why a specific business hasn't been listed.

If you've discovered a great business that you believe should be covered by us you can let us know about it here.
