Wigan's latest food hygiene ratings round-up

The borough’s takeaways, restaurants and pubs have been under scrutiny once again from health inspectors, and more than half of those visited scored high marks.

Out of 75 food-serving establishments inspected during November, 24 were awarded the highest possible score of Five - a percentage rate of 42.

Just over a quarter (26 per cent) of eateries achieved a Four, the second highest score available. It takes the total number of Five and Four rated venues to 52 per cent.

None of November’s inspections resulted in a Zero score.

And one venue revealed it was already taking steps to improve its ranking after a low score.

Ena and Jim’s Coffee Shop and Sandwich Bar in Ince was one of five premises to score a Two. But the owners of Warrington Road cafe responded to the Food Standards Agency inspection, saying: “A ventilation system has been put in, and a partition wall has been placed between the bathroom and the back kitchen.”

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.



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.

All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of January 2019:
