More than 17 per cent (20) venues were given the second best rating of four, while 17 scored a three.

A rating of two was dished out to 14 eateries, and 11 were given the second lowest score of one.

No outlets were given the dreaded zero for the third successive month.

There were several venues which turned their fortunes around in January, having received disappointing marks in recent months.

Ena and Jim’s Coffee Shop and Sandwich Bar in Ince was one of five premises to score a two last November. But the owners of the Warrington Road cafe quickly turned things around and were one of the many five-star rated businesses.

Popular Billinge pub The Holts Arms earned a miserable zero rating on its last surprise visit from inspectors in October, but redeemed itself with a score of four this time around.

All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of March 2019:
