Cherwell District Council – ‘Food Hygiene Rating’

Eating out or ordering a takeaway? 
Be sure to look out for the green and black sticker.

The Food Standard Agency checks how well the business is meeting the law by looking at:

– 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.

A rating of 3 or above is advised.

If you would like to check the ratings for any existing or future establishments you might visit, please go to the Food Standards Agency via the following link –
