The council's environmental health team is in charge of inspecting and rating hospitality venues on a zero to five scale with zero being the lowest score and five the highest.

Each inspection grades hygienic food handling, management of food safety and cleanliness and condition of facilities and building.

Businesses given low ratings are told what specific improvements are needed to improve hygiene standards.
