The scheme helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels and other places you eat, as well as supermarkets and other food shops.

You can make special requests when you book your test, for example, if you have a disability and need extra equipment or help to access the centre.

The scheme is run by the Food Standards Agency in partnership with local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Local authorities are responsible for carrying out inspections of food businesses to check that they meet the requirements of food hygiene law.

Ratings are given to:
• places where you can eat out such as restaurants, takeaways, cafés, sandwich shops, pubs, and hotels
• other places you eat away from homes, such as schools, hospitals, and residential care homes
• places where you shop for food, such as supermarkets, bakeries, and delicatessens.

A new rating is given each time the business is inspected by a food safety officer from the local authority where the business is located.

How often inspections take place depends on the potential risk to people’s health if something goes wrong and this depends on the type of food being handled and the type of processes that are carried out before the food is sold or served to the public.
