Food safety inspectors at Sunderland City Council have assessed these Wearside businesses to have zero or one star food hygiene ratings after visiting the venues.

A zero star rating is bottom of the scale, and means “urgent improvement is required”, while a one star rating means “major improvement is necessary”.

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.

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.

The food safety officer will also tell the business how quickly these improvements must be made.
