Food hygiene ratings
Information on the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme for consumers.
The Environmental Health team visits hundreds of food premises each year in order to check food hygiene standards and to help operators comply with food regulations. Inspections will often result in the food business being awarded a food hygiene rating.
- The top rating of ‘5’ means that the business was found to have ‘very good’ hygiene standards.
- A rating of ‘0’ is the lowest score and means that the business requires some ‘urgent improvement’.
We also encourage businesses to display their food hygiene rating stickers and certificates at their premises in a place where you can easily see them when you visit.
