Hygiene ratings - latest results

editorial image

A massive 94 per cent of the borough’s food establishments subjected to a hygiene inspection in June scored top marks.

In a stand-out month, an incredible 35 out of 37 establishments inspected by health officers were awarded the highest possible rating of Five (Very Good).

Only two failed to get the maximum score, but no establishment scored less than Three (Satisfactory) for the month.

For the eight month in a row, nowhere received a Zero rating, meaning the borough has still not had any of its eateries told to require urgent improve at all this year.

Businesses that serve food are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, 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, layout, 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 of the establishment 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 hygiene ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of June.
