Food hygiene ratings

Find out if a restaurant or takeaway you want to eat at or buy food from has good food hygiene standards.

We are part of the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme, which is run by the Food Standards Agency. Our food safety officers inspect takeaways, restaurants, pubs and clubs, and give them a score from 0 to 5 for the standard of food hygiene.

Search for a food outlet to view their food hygiene rating.
