Sunderland City Council food safety inspectors have assessed these businesses for their food hygiene and given them scores of three and four.

A three star rating means that “hygiene standards are generally satisfactory” 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.

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.

Inspectors ruled that hygienic food handling was “generally satisfactory” with management of food safety and cleanliness and condition of facilities and building both rated as “good”.
