New Food Hygiene Checks

A new rating system for Cornish restaurants, pubs and hotels could help us choose between fantastic food and Fawlty Towers.

Stickers will tell us how inspectors have rated kitchen hygiene on a scale of zero to five.

A website will let us check scores online before we book. So far 1,000 places have been visited and around a quarter have achieved the highest five star rating.

At the inspection, the officer will check how hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored; the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities and how the business manages and records what it does to make sure that food is safe.   

The bright green and black stickers are then displayed in the window of eligible premises and will show a rating from zero to five, with five at the top of the scale where hygiene standards are very good, to zero at the bottom which indicates that urgent improvement is required.

Cornwall Council’s Head of Public Health and Protection Allan Hampshire said, “We have done a lot of work with premises including training sessions and the distribution of leaflets and information. We want to make sure that not only the premises concerned are aware of the changes but also that the public know what the ratings mean and where they can find further information.”  

Eddie Stanton, from The Pickwick Inn, St Issey said, "We are delighted to have been awarded the 5 rating at the Pickwick Inn.  It's testament to the hard work and dedication of the team headed up by General Manager, Sue Hammett.  We are also very lucky to have a contact in John Dickinson from Environmental Health who has provided advice and support over the last 30 years to help us achieve this great accolade.  This award scheme is a marvellous vehicle for lifting standards in the catering industry."
