Food Hygiene Ratings

Just five companies were rated Two, but a worrying 17 were told major improvement was necessary after being given a score of One. No venues have scored Zero in 2021 so far.

Businesses that serve food are rated 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.

All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of April 2021:
