Food hygiene ratings

The food hygiene scheme will help you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, and other places you eat out. Supermarkets and other food shops are also included in the scheme.

Each business is given a hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer.

The hygiene rating shows how closely the business is meeting the requirements of food hygiene law. Businesses are encouraged to display their ratings stickers and certificates at their premises. The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.
