The good, the bad, and the grotty

Joanne Atkinson of Ice Dreams and Coffee Beans welcomes the scheme in Leyland

Food hygiene is at an all time high in Leyland’s pubs, restaurants and takeaways as the ‘scores on doors’ scheme reaches its third year in South Ribble.

More eating establishments in the town have been given four or five stars under the inspections in the last 12 months than ever before, but there are still some falling short.

Six takeaways were branded only good enough for a one star rating on the Food Standards Agency website, meaning major improvement is necessary, following the unannounced inspections by officers at South Ribble Council.

Five eating places, including pubs and takeaways, were given two stars, which means improvement is necessary, and 55 were awarded the top five-star rating.

One of Leyland’s newest cafes, Ice Dreams and Coffee Beans in Church Road, received the ‘very good’ top score, and owner Joanne Atkinson says the scheme is a good way of improving standards across the town.

She said: “I think it’s really good for people to see these ratings before they choose where to eat; they can see what kind of rating a place has been given.

“I’m also in the cleaning business so I know how important cleanliness and hygiene is, so I knew we would do well here. I’m very pleased to be able to show our rating to our customers.”

Some managers who scored low under the initiative said the results were ‘unfair’.
