And, when it comes to hygiene requirements are all set out in law, and the Food Standards Agency operates a rating scheme in partnership with local authorities that carry out inspections of premises.
The score sheet runs from zero – meaning ‘urgent improvement is required’ – to five, denoting a place where hygiene standards are ‘very good’.
Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. The criteria include handling of food; how food is stored and prepared; cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.
Happily there are dozens of fish and chip shops in Doncaster that have achieved full five-star ratings. Here are 10 of the best, based on the most recent data available from the FSA.
