It's Down To You To Check
Although food businesses have a legal duty to run their business hygienically, customers should always check a business's hygiene rating if they want to minimise the risk of eating at an unsafe establishment.
Over the past few years, there's been an increasing demand for England to follow Northern Ireland and Wales in making it mandatory for businesses to display their ratings. Currently, a third of UK food outlets do not display their food hygiene rating.
It's always best to double-check a rating if you are unsure using the Food Standards Agency's information or by downloading the Scores on the Doors app on your mobile.
