Look before you book


Blaby District Council launched the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) in February 2011. The aim of the national scheme is to promote high performing food businesses and to enable consumers make informed choices about where they eat out or shop for food.

How to check a food business’ rating

If a food business (for example a café, restaurant, canteen or supermarket) has been given a food hygiene rating, you can search for it at www.food.gov.uk/ratings  

In addition to this when you eat out or shop for food, you might see a window sticker displayed at the food premises; this shows the hygiene rating for that business.

Further information

Overview of the scheme

The scheme is a Food Standards Agency/local authority partnership initiative to provide consumers with at-a-glance information about hygiene standards in food businesses found during planned inspections.

The aim is to help the public make informed choices about where they eat out or shop for food. Having a single scheme in place will help ensure consistency for businesses both within and across local authority boundaries.

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme consists of 6 tiers; a score of 5 will be the highest level indicating very good standards of food hygiene and a score of 0 will indicate that urgent improvement is necessary.


Rating Performance Level
5 Very good
4 Good
3 Generally satisfactory
