The council has signed up to a new national food hygiene ratings scheme in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
The scheme helps customers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, and other food businesses.
The scheme also encourages businesses to improve their hygiene standards. The main aim is to reduce the incidence of food-borne illness and the associated costs to the economy.
Each business is given a hygiene rating when it is inspected by a regulatory services officer from the council. The rating shows how closely the business is meeting the requirements of food hygiene law.
Food hygiene ratings
- 5 - Very good
- 4 - Good
- 3 - Generally satisfactory
- 2 - Improvements necessary
- 1 - Major improvements necessary

Businesses are encouraged to display stickers and certificates showing their food hygiene ratings at their premises where customers can easily see them.
