UPDATED MAY – Tamworth’s most hygienic Takeaways, and the others you may want to avoid…

Saturday, 4th May 2019

TAMWORTH and its surrounding area have a vast selection of Takeaways for if you are feeling peckish, but do you know how hygienically your food has been prepared?

Fortunately, in Tamworth, Fazeley and North Warwickshire, there are far more 5 point rated takeaways than 1 or 0 points rated; 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.

The businesses listed are those that are listed as Takeaways / Cafes with the local authority and so the list does exclude solely restaurants – these will come in a separate article.

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 takeaways scoring top marks…

0 point food hygiene rating

Fortunately, there are no businesses scoring 0 in this category at this time.

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.

Businesses in Wales and Northern Ireland are legally required to display their rating. However, in England, businesses do not have to display the rating they have been awarded, with those scoring low marks much less likely to put them on display to customers – so if there isn’t a sticker in sight, you may want to check RateMyPlace.

All scores correct at time of publication, using both ratemyplace.org.uk and ratings.food.gov.uk

At this time we have not compiled a list of restaurants and so at this time, the above list only companies listed as takeaways for the relevant authority.

We are happy to correct any errors bought to our attention upon cross-checking.  Please email hello@tamworthinformed.co.uk to bring this to our attention.
