Sunderland City Council food safety inspectors have assessed these businesses for their food hygiene and given them scores from two to four.

A two star rating means that “some improvement is necessary” whereas a four star rating means that “hygiene standards are good”.

Inspectors look at areas such as hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building, along with management of food safety, when giving a rating.

Food safety officers have been visiting a number of venues across Wearside.

For a business to get the top rating of five, they must do well in all three elements and if the top rating is not given, the officer will explain the actions needed to improve their hygiene rating.

Businesses that are given low ratings must make urgent improvements to hygiene standards, with the food safety officer having several enforcement options available to them to ensure that improvements are made.
