Food Hygiene Ratings

We are responsible for inspecting all food establishments within our District to ensure that all food businesses maintain satisfactory standards of hygiene and cleanliness.

We have joined the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme which allows customers to choose which premises to visit based upon their hygiene standards.

The key areas assessed are:

  • How hygienically food is handled, cooked and stored.

  • The condition of the structure of the building.

  • The premises cleanliness, layout, lighting and ventilation along with other facilities.

  • How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

You can check your rating by visiting the Food Standards Agency or you can download the smart phone app to your phone so you can search for a safe premises to eat anywhere within England.
