What is a food hygiene rating?

A food hygiene rating is given to all businesses which serve food.

It is awarded following an inspection which measures a business based on the following three criteria:

  • Hygienic food handling
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building
  • Management of food safety

The business is then awarded an overall score from zero – meaning urgent improvement is required – to five – meaning hygiene standards are very good:

  • Zero – urgent improvement is required
  • One – major improvement is necessary
  • Two – some improvement is necessary
  • Three – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory
  • Four – hygiene standards are good
  • Five – hygiene standards are very good
