These 25 restauarants in Halifax have all been given five-star ratings by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
A five-star rating is top of the scale, and means the hygiene standards are very good and fully comply with the law
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.
Here’s what the ratings mean:
5 – hygiene standards are very good
4 – hygiene standards are good
3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory
2 – some improvement is necessary
1 – major improvement is necessary
0 – urgent improvement is required
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.
