IF you're tempted by a Friday night takeaway or tea out, you might want to take a look at the latest food hygiene ratings in the city first.

We have taken a look at the most recent findings of council inspectors for the Food Standards Agency over the past month.

More than 1,849 businesses are rated by the Food Standards Agency including pubs, bars, restaurants, cafes and sandwich shops.

The hygiene standards found at the time of inspection are then rated on a scale.

  • Five is top of the scale, meaning the hygiene standards are very good and fully comply with the law.
  • Four is good
  • Three is generally satisfactory
  • Two is requires improvement
  • One is major improvement necessary
  • Zero is at the bottom of the scale, meaning urgent improvement is necessary.
