Make sure your favourite restaurant is safe

Make sure your favourite restaurant is safe: a new initiative to improve Borough food safety standards has been launched.

Our Environmental Health Department are responsible for ensuring food premises within the Borough are operating safely and hygienically.

The system we use is governed by the Food Standards Agency who administers the Food Hygiene rating scheme.

The rating shows how well the business is doing overall, based on standards found at the time of inspection. The ratings can be found online and on stickers which are displayed at business premises. The back of the sticker and the online rating will also show the date of the inspection by the local authority’s food safety officer.

A food safety officer from the council inspects a business to check that it follows food hygiene law so that the food is safe to eat.

The Borough currently has 320 food businesses which are eligible for a food hygiene rating. Which currently have the below ratings:

246 outlets - 5 rating

46 outlets - 4 rating

25 outlets - 3 rating

1 outlet - 2 rating

2 outlets - 1 rating

1 outlet - 0 rating

As part of a new campaign to improve food safety standards, we will now publish, on an ongoing basis, food premises that have a 0-2 rating, which represents the lower end of the 0-5 scale. 0 is at the bottom of the scale, this means urgent improvement is necessary.

To look for future updates on subsequent low scoring Borough food outlets, please visit our social media channels and search using the hashtag: #OWBCFoodSafety.
