These 12 restaurants and takeaways in Worthing have all been given a one-star rating by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
This means that ‘major improvement’ is necessary due to the businesses failing to meet satisfactory standards at the time of the last published inspection.
The good news is that 207 restaurants, takeaways, cafes, and sandwich shops in Worthing are rated as five-star ‘very good’.
From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.
Eateries are judged on three criteria:
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.
The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
The information published below is from the Food Standards Agency website as of Monday, July 30.
