These 13 restaurants in Blackpool have all been given either zero, one or two-star ratings by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
This means that major or urgent improvement is needed due to the businesses failing to meet satisfactory standards at the time of the last published inspection.
A zero star rating means “urgent improvement necessary” while one star means “major improvement necessary”.
The good news is that 1,695 businesses in Blackpool are rated as Three Star ‘Satisfactory’ or above.
From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.
Eateries are judged on three criteria:
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.
The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
