Food Hygiene in the UK: dare you look?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 7 April 2008

Scores on the Doors is a collection of food hygiene ratings from councils around the country, searchable so you can look up your favourite local restaurant or pub. Each gets a star rating from zero to five.

Tom H, who sent the link, was aghast to look up a north Bristol pub where he, I and other friends have eaten repeatedly over the years and see it get zero stars. Another favourite haunt just down the road gets five stars.

They even have the option to SMS the rating to your mobile phone, so while your food is being prepared, you can find out if the kitchen staff ever bother to wipe down the surfaces.

Edit: According to Wikinews, more than 70 businesses here in Bristol have got zero stars: a much worse statistic than some other areas.
