Looking for a Cafe or Restaurant for a bite to eat? You may want to check our list first

Sunday, 6th January 2019

TAMWORTH and the surrounding area has a great selection of cafes and restaurants for if you want to take the weight off your feet whilst having a bite to eat, but do you know how hygienically your food has been prepared?

Fortunately, in Tamworth, Fazeley, Polesworth and Dordon there are more 5 point rated eateries than 1 point rated and fortunately no 0 point rated Cafes or Restaurants; but do you know where is clean and where isn’t?

With thanks to RateMyPlace and the Food Standards Agency, we thought we would bring you a list.

RateMyPlace works in partnership with Tamworth Borough Council and other local authorities across Staffordshire to publish details of food safety inspection reports and hygiene rating scores across the county.

The site gives businesses between 0 and 5 points, and is aligned with the national food hygiene rating scheme, which is calculated by taking into account how hygienic the premises are, whether they take into account recognised food hygiene practices and how much confidence the inspector has in the management to keep their premises up to standard.

The time between inspections varies from six months for the highest risk businesses to two years for lower risk businesses. For some very low-risk businesses, the interval between inspections may be longer than two years, however, there may be some exceptions to this.

In between inspections, local authorities may also monitor businesses in other ways to ensure they are maintaining hygiene standards. If these checks reveal anything that might indicate that hygiene standards have deteriorated, the officer will carry out an inspection and the business will get a new rating.

So here is the low-down; the date quoted for each location is the date of their last inspection.

First, let’s start off with the cafes and restaurants scoring top marks…
