Hygiene ratings - latest results

editorial image

More than half of Wigan’s food establishments inspected last month received the highest possible rating.

Out of the 47 takeaways, restaurants, cafes, pubs and schools inspected last month across the borough, 25 achieved a rating of five - meaning “very good.”

In a drastic drop, only eight eateries received a “good” rating of four, but the number of places getting a “generally satisfactory” score of three was slightly higher at 13.

There were no ratings of two (improvement necessary) in February, and only one - Stop Inn on Market Place, Atherton - required “major improvement” with its score of one.

Businesses that serve food are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored, the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, lay-out, lighting, ventilation and other facilities as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

The information provided on businesses is held on behalf of local authorities participating in the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in England, Northern Ireland and Wales or the Food Hygiene Information Scheme in Scotland.

The inspections continue throughout the year, with rating designed to provide reassurance to customers.

Establishments are also marked on food-handling practices and procedures and temperature control, as well as its structural compliance, such as cleanliness, lay-out, condition of structure, lighting, ventilation and facilities.

Businesses are also marked on confidence in management, which is graded on the performance of those in charge and issues such as how well guidelines are understood by the workforce as well as things such as the track record of the company and complaint history.

The latest ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of March.
