Out of the 61 food establishments inspected in January, 38 were awarded the highest possible rating of five, or “very good” – an impressive 63 per cent.

Places such as Astley and Tyldesley Miners Welfare Society (better known as the Gin Pit Club), Hindley’s La Cava Italian and Einstein’s in King Street were among the top ranks.

On the far end of the scale, Discount Food and Wine in Platt Bridge was the sole venue to receive the lowest possible score of zero, meaning urgent improvement is necessary.

Ashton’s branch of KFC was the recipient of a ‘very good’ rating, in the month prior to the fast-food chain’s nationwide chicken shortage which saw it temporarily close its doors.

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.

All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of February 2018:
