Food Hygiene Rating System
Next time you're dining out or having a takeaway you'll be able to see the hygiene ratings of your local eatery – from fine restaurants to kebab vans – thanks to a new council scheme: The Food Hygiene Rating System.
Places that prepare and serve food are now awarded up to five stars following a food hygiene inspection.
