More than 70 per cent of eateries were rated as performing to the correct standard in the most recently published hygiene results.
Out of the 37 assessed, 26 were given a score of at least three out of five.
The results are those that have been published in the last month.
Businesses that serve food are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored, the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
It is not an assessment of an establishment’s culinary prowess.
Anything deemed three or above is described as being of an acceptable standard.
There were no fives recorded, but there were a total of 15 businesses which scored four with a further 11 being rated as a three.
However, seven businesses were only rated a one, while four were rated two, meaning that 30 per cent were thought not up to the minimum level expected.
Once again though, and this will be of some relief to punters, no businesses recorded the lowest “zero” score.
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, lay-out, 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 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.
