Food hygiene ratings Wigan: the restaurants, cafés, takeaways and canteens awarded new rating by the Food Standards Agency

Two establishments in Wigan borough have been awarded astonishingly low food hygiene marks.

Both Thai supermarket Raan Nuch, in Ashton, and Rema Tandoori Balti, in Tyldesley, earned a score of zero in the latest round of inspections.

While Raan Nuch had a good standard for cleanliness and hygienic food handling, its management of food safety requires urgent improvement.

Rema Tandoori Balti needs improvement across all three aspects.

Dish Bar and Restaurant in Standish has also earned a much improved hygiene mark, after it was rated just one star last month.

Chapel Street News in Leigh and Garlix in Golborne were some of those who earned one star.

Businesses are scored from zero to five on a variety of different components, like how food is handled with preparation, cooking, reheating and storage.

They also look at the cleanliness, layout and structure of the building when it comes to lighting, ventilation and how it is managed.
