What do different food hygiene ratings mean?

There are six different ratings that a venue can be awarded from 0 to 5. 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.

What do FSA inspectors assess?

Inspectors look at a few different key elements when assessing the hygiene of a restaurant including: 

How hygienically the food is handled- such as how its 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 what it does to make sure food is safe so the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.

Do businesses have to show their food hygiene ratings in-store?

In England and Scotland, it is voluntary for businesses to display their FSA food hygiene rating sticker.

However, businesses in Wales and Northern Ireland are legally required to display their food hygiene ratings in a prominent place, such as the front door, entrance or window of the premises.
