Popular Wigan restaurant scores just ONE in latest hygiene ratings
One of Wigan’s swankier restaurants has received a shockingly low food hygiene mark.
Wiganers will be stunned to find out Albert’s at Standish have been given a one-star rating.
Such a ranking means various aspects of the restaurant need improving, while the overall management of food safety requires a major overhaul.
People from Standish have taken to social media to share their thoughts.
“That could be potentially life-threatening for some people.”
Amie Leanna said: “What a shame. Hopefully they will change this soon, it’s a lovely venue for Standish”
Officials from the Food Standards Agency often conduct impromptu visits to food-serving premises across the borough - the most recent assessments to be published coming from September
Out of 37 inspections that month, a massive 32 received a score of five, signifying a “very good” rating.
Seven establishments received a four, while just two places earned the satisfactory rating of three.
This means that in 2021 so far, out of Wigan’s 724 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 484 (67 per cent) have ratings of five and none has landed the dreaded zero rating.
Also receiving a one alongside Albert’s were Nutrisport on Wallgate and the Siam House Thai Takeaway in Standish.
Among those proudly sporting a five is Shevington Community Pantry.
Businesses are scored from zero to five on a variety of different components such as 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.
