CAFES, pubs, restaurants and takeaways across Salisbury have been handed new food hygiene ratings recently.  

Each week, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) inspects businesses across the country, assessing hygiene and safety, structural compliance and confidence in management.       

Across the UK, every food outlet including convenience stores, restaurants, hospitals and care homes are given a hygiene rating.        

What each hygiene rating means:   

0 - Urgent improvement necessary     

1 - Major improvement necessary      

2 - Some improvement necessary      

3 - Hygiene standards generally satisfactory        

4 - Hygiene standards good      

5 - Hygiene standards very good
