The eight premises in South Tyneside awarded four and five star hygiene ratings in recent months

Eight premises across South Tyneside have been handed four or five-star food hygiene ratings in recent months.

South Tyneside Council food safety inspectors have given a number of local businesses and premises four and five-star food hygiene ratings after assessments were carried out in May, June and July.

A four-star rating means that “hygiene standards are good”, while reaching a full five-star rating means inspectors have classified standards as “very good”.
