Your FAQ

Question: How can I find out what the rating is for a takeaway or other food business?

Answer: If a takeaway or other food business has been given a rating, you can search for it on food.gov.uk/ratings.
When you eat out or shop for food, you might see a sticker in the window or on the door, or a certificate on display, showing you the hygiene rating for that business. Businesses are encouraged to display these stickers and certificates in a place where you can easily see them when you visit.
These stickers and certificates will also show the date the hygiene standards were inspected by the local authority’s environmental health officer.
If you don’t see the rating at a takeaway or other food business, you can ask a member of staff if the business is in the scheme and what rating was given at the last inspection.
