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.
