Sunderland 'elite' food hygiene: Pubs and bars which have received five-star food hygiene rating three times in a row
We’re taking a look at the Sunderland pubs and bars which have been awarded an ‘elite’ food hygiene score, meaning they have been rated five-stars by the food standards agency, three times in a row.
The elite rating shows the consistency of a five-star rating, which is awarded when a premises demonstrates ‘very good’ food hygiene standards.
The inspections are ordered by the Food Standards Agency, an independent government department working to protect public health and consumers’ wider interests in relation to food.
During an inspection, officers look at areas such as hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building, along with management of food safety.
In order to get a top rating of five, a business must do well in all elements of food hygiene standards and if this is not given the officer will explain the actions needed to improve.
Over 35 Sunderland pubs and bars have earned the ‘elite’ rating, according to the Scores on The Doors website, and they can be seen below in postcode order.
