Just found a couple of local places which have been there for a lot of years but were 0 rated. They look spotless. Are all the ones mentioned been rated or is it possible that they haven't been.

The ones that haven't been rated are marked as such. The methods and scoring are included in the two attached documents. It's not just about looks, it's about attitude, knowledge and application. The inspectors turn up unannounced and interview staff and inspect their procedures. It all goes towards the rating. Things must be spectacularly bad to get a zero.

Now that you know their rating would you still be happy to go ?

You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

From the DCC policy document:

The Food Hygiene Star Rating is based on the scores for hygiene, structure and confidence in management, because they are under the direct control of the food business operator. The individual scores will be translated into star awards for each business and these will be posted on an internet website.  

The better the standards of food safety the higher the number of stars given. This will range from 5 stars (excellent) to no stars (very poor).


So it's not about just appearance, but also attitude, knowledge and standards.

I tried the Bayleaf when I was over in May. Not quite as spicy as I normally like it but still pretty good. I really miss Indian takeaways.

Wow, I can't believe it. I've gone to one takeaway for about 30 years. They are very friendly, know a lot about the food they cook and don't deliver because they are kept so busy with people coming in to pick food up. The food is so delicious, people come from quite a distance. The reception area is spotless but you can't see in to the back properly where the food is cooked.

Is it not possible that the inspector for this site hasn't been there at all?

What was their rating? The rating has nothing to do with whether we like the food or not, or whether it is tasty or not. The place can apparently serve gruel, as long as it's hygienically prepared gruel, according to food prep regulations. Remember : 2 stars or over is legal. If it scored 2 you've got nowt to worry about. If the rating is under 2, the place will have been ordered to make immediate reparations, so chances are the standards are now better than at the inspection date (which is actually quoted on the site).

It was 0 rated. Yes, you're right. The food could be the best but the hygeine bad.

I passed another one today which was 0 rated. The local schoolkids go there every dinner time. The floor was littered with empty crisp packets and sweet papers.
