Wigan food hygiene ratings: the restaurants, cafés, takeaways and canteens awarded new rating by the Food Standards Agency in December
Two borough eateries have received a shockingly low food hygiene mark.
Italianos in Atherton and Pachinos Pizza in Tyldesley were both awarded zero stars.
This means that aspects such as the cleanliness and condition of facilities and building require major improvement.
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 December.
Out of 48 inspections that month, 27 received five stars signifying a “very good” rating.
Six venues earned a four, while three businesses earned a three.
Four eateries were awarded a two, while six establishments earned one star.
At the end of 2022, out of Wigan’s 451 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 215 (47 per cent) have ratings of five.
Eight venues were also awarded zero stars.
Among those proudly showcasing a high rating is the Sir Thomas Gerard in Ashton.
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.
