London: The worst city in England for restaurants hygiene?

  • 0

Despite the pandemic, food hygiene officials have continued to inspect restaurants and businesses around the country – which helps you sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to picking venues for meetings and entertaining.

Ranging from go-to coffee shops to our favourite takeaways there were numerous one-star hygiene ratings for certain chain restaurants in the UK – but where in the UK has the worst restaurant hygiene ratings overall?

Unfortunately for residents in the capital, it doesn’t look so good as a new study by Essential Living has uncovered that the city has the highest number of one-star hygiene rated restaurants in the UK. Just 61% of London’s restaurants achieved five-star (top) hygiene rating available from the FSA.

Over 2,000 eateries in London scored under two stars in their hygiene ratings in the past year, making up approximately 6% of all London restaurants.

The report also looks at which well-known chain restaurants and takeaways have the best and worst hygiene ratings across the UK, as well as revealing the worst UK supermarkets for food poisoning reports and recalls.
