Ahead of more places reopening on Monday, May 17, The Gazette has created a roundup of businesses that have been awarded five stars by the food standards agency this year.
All the businesses were inspected in 2021.
Each business is given their hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer from the business’s local authority.
The inspection criteria include:
- 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 At the end of the inspection, the business is given one of the six ratings from 0-5.
Here's a list of the restaurants, cafes, takeaways and businesses that received a five star rating this year.
