Food Hygiene Ratings

What is the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme?

Food Hygeine Rating 1Poole is running the scheme in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.   It will help you choose where to eat out in restaurants or from takeaways by giving you information about the hygiene standards in these premises at the time they were inspected by one of our food safety officers.

The rating reflects the hygiene conditions found at the time of the last inspection and does not reflect the quality of food or the standards of service the business provides.

Businesses are rated between 1-5, with 5 being considered Very Good, but any rating 3 and above will give you confidence that their standard of hygiene is acceptable.

Further information about the scheme can be found on the Borough of Poole.  

Food Hygiene ratings for Poole businesses are now available on the Food Standards Agency website.
