How good is your favourite food shop, cafe, take away or restaurant? No, not just whether the food is tasty – are the food hygiene standards good enough.
Now you can check online, or from your iPhone or iPad, before you enter the shop, or book a table.
OK, you like the look of the place. The menu posted at the door looks good. But will the food be good? More importantly, is the food hygiene up to standard?
Now, it is easy to find how a restaurant, take-away or other food service rates on its food hygiene. In Scotland we currently have a “pass” or “fail”, but in England you will find a score of one to five.
You can search by business name, address or postcode. The URL to bookmark is www.food.gov.uk/ratings
Or, if you have an iPhone, or iPad download the Food Hygiene app from the App Store.
