New food hygiene ratings have been awarded to seven of East Devon’s establishments, the Food Standards Agency’s website shows – and it’s good news for them all.

An East Devon restaurant has been handed a new four-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.

The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at their premises and online.

5 – hygiene standards are very good, 4 – hygiene standards are good, 3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, 2 – some improvement is necessary, 1 – major improvement is necessary and 0 meaning urgent improvement is required
