The Food Standards Agency runs the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in partnership with local authorities including Hart District Council. The scheme gives businesses a rating so you can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

Find out the rating of any business across Hart by checking on the Food Standards Agency website

How the ratings are worked out

A Food Safety Officer will inspect a food outlet and give it a rating. They will look at:

  • how hygienically the food is handled
  • the condition and cleanliness of the premises
  • how food safety is managed and documented

A rating of five is very good, working down to a zero which means urgent improvements are needed. If the rating is under five the officer will explain what improvements need to be made.

If you're unhappy with the rating your business has received, you can use this form to:

  • appeal your rating
  • request a revisit
  • reply to your rating
