The latest batch of hygiene inspections saw just under half of all venues visited score the highest mark possible, with 45 out of the 99 resulting in a rating of Five, or “Very good.”

Venues such as Mahabharat in Hindley, the King’s Arms pub in Ashton and Leigh town centre’s Cafe Stella all scored top marks.

Derby Street Chippy experienced a huge turnaround from its previous visit from health inspectors. The Atherton chip shop received a damning rating of zero when it was last inspected in November 2017.

But a swift follow-up check in February saw the takeaway awarded four. It was one of 21 venues to score the second highest marks, ranking alongside venues such as the Royal Oak in Standish and The Raj Gate restaurant.

Two neighbouring takeaways were also visited in the same month too. King Street outlets Godfather and Kebab World scored two and one respectively.

Marty’s Kitchen and Bar, located in Wallgate, was also one of the unfortunate eateries to score one.

No venues scored zero for the month.

Hygiene ratings

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.
