Seven eateries also landed a two and six premises earned one star.

In 2023, out of Wigan’s 769 restaurants, cafes, sandwich shops and canteens with ratings, 514 (67 per cent) have ratings of five.

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.

All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of September 2023:
