NEW food hygiene ratings have been awarded to three of Dudley’s establishments, the Food Standards Agency’s website shows.

The following rating has been given to one restaurant, cafe or canteen:

• Rated 3: Bar Caff? Colombo at 27 Market Street, Stourbridge; rated on May 14

And two ratings have been handed to takeaways:

• Rated 4: Gourmet Kitchen at 173 High Street, Brierley Hill; rated on May 14

• Rated 3: Harper's British Classics at Eat Central Fc8, Merry Hill Centre, Brierley Hill; rated on May 14

The ratings have been published on the Food Standards Agency’s website which rates businesses from zero to five so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good, four means hygiene standards are good, three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary, a rating of one means major improvement is necessary and a rating of zero means urgent improvement is required.

People can see the results of all food hygiene inspections via Dudley Council’s website or on the national website.
