In September the Food Standards Agency carried out hygiene rating visits for a large number of Peterborough based food operators. The results were shocking with 64 establishments across the city only getting 1 star and some of the more prestigious hotels gaining zero stars and being handed improvement notices to clean up their act before the start of Christmas trade.

Surprisingly Dobbies Garden Centre in Peterborough was amongst the establishments to get zero stars and be handed an improvement notice, along with many other take-aways and smaller establishments.

A full list of hygiene ratings for all food operators across England and Wales is available by going to the Food Standards Agency Website http://ratings.food.gov.uk/ , it is highly recommended that you check out an establishments hygiene rating before booking your meal this Christmas.
