These 15 restaurants/takeaways in Chesterfield have all been given one or two-star ratings by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
This means that major or urgent improvement is needed due to the businesses failing to meet satisfactory standards at the time of the last published inspection.
A zero star rating means “urgent improvement necessary” while one star means “major improvement necessary”. Two star means “improvement necessary”.
How unhygienic does a food outlet need to be to get a zero-star rating?
The good news is that over 400 businesses in Chesterfield are rated as Three Star ‘Satisfactory’ or above.
And no restaurants/takeaways received a zero rating.
From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.
Eateries are judged on three criteria:
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.
The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
What happens when a restaurant or takeaway gets a zero-star food hygiene rating?
The information published below is from the Food Standards Agency website as of July 30.
