Check the scores on the doors on Dad’s Day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SOUTH BUCKS Dis­trict Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to check the food hy­giene rat­ing of a res­tau­rant, pub or take­away if they’re go­ing out to din­ner on Fa­ther’s Day.

Places that sell or serve food are in­spected by a food safety of­fi­cer from the coun­cil and given a food hy­giene rat­ing.

The rat­ings range from five, which means the hy­giene stan­dards are very good, to zero, which in­di­cates ur­gent im­prove­ment is re­quired.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil­lor Trevor Egle­ton, port­fo­lio holder for healthy com­mu­ni­ties said: “We in­spect all eat­ing out venues across the dis­trict to en­sure they are up to scratch, with 90 per cent of food busi­nesses hav­ing a rat­ing of three or higher.

“Be­fore you book your meal out, take a few min­utes to check the hy­giene rat­ing. You want your dad to re­mem­ber the day for all the right rea­sons not be­cause of a bout of food poi­son­ing.”

Check rat­ings at food. gov.uk/rat­ings or by down­load­ing the free ‘food hy­giene’ app on your mo­bile de­vice, or look out for green and black stick­ers that busi­nesses dis­play.
