Businesses that serve food are rated on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored; the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, lay-out, lighting, ventilation and other facilities, as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
A one star rating means "major improvement is necessary", a two star means "some improvement is necessary", while three star means "hygiene standards are generally satisfactory" and four star means "hygiene standards are good".
The rating are those displayed on the government’s food hygiene agency website – on October 25, 2021.
Here are the the 7 businesses with 1 star inspected between August and October 2021:
UPDATE: The original version of this article included information from the Food Standards Agency listing the Old Coach House Hotel as a 1 star rated business. However, it has since been brought to our attention that the inspection on September 14, 2021 took place shortly after the hotel had reopened following Covid. Inspectors have since reinspected the hotel on October 28, 2021 and awarded the business a 5 star rating.
