Food Hygiene ratings

There were 59 surprise inspections by the Food Standards Agency in June at restaurants, pubs, takeaways, cafes and schools across the borough. And 54 per cent of them (32) earned a perfect score of five.

There were five venues each to receive a rating of three, two or one.

Vito’s Pizza in Elliot Street, Tyldesley, was the only venue to score the lowest possible result of zero.

The New Chippery scored a rating of Three

Businesses that serve food are rated 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.

A five-star rating is top of the scale, and means the hygiene standards are very good and fully comply with the law.

Fifteens at Standish scored five out of five

A four rating means standards are “Good,” three indicates a “generally satisfactory” performance, while “some improvement is necessary” for venues sporting a rating of two.

Anywhere with a rating of one requires major improvement, and zero ratings demand “urgent improvement.”

Establishments are also judged 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.

Credit is also given for 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.

Vito's Pizza in Tyldesley got a Zero mark
