NEW food hygiene ratings for eateries and food retailers across Hampshire have been published by the Food Standards Agency.

Listed below are the latest findings of environmental health staff employed by local authorities in the Southampton area.

Thousands of premises across Hampshire are rated by the Agency, based on the findings of inspectors, who work all year round.

The hygiene standards found at the time of inspection are then rated on a scale.

Five is top of the scale, meaning the hygiene standards are very good and fully comply with the law. Zero is at the bottom of the scale, meaning urgent improvement is necessary.
