REVEALED: The Dearne food outlets with the best and worst hygiene ratings

editorial image

The South Yorkshire Times can today reveal the food outlets from across the region that have received the highest and lowest hygiene ratings by the Food Standards Agency.

A total of two food outlets across the borough received zero-star hygiene rating by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in 2014.

The scores - based on the latest inspections by the FSA mean “urgent improvement” is necessary.

Ratings are based on how the food is handled, the condition and cleanliness of the premises and how the business ensures food is safe.

The premises revealed to have the worst hygiene ratings in the region last year were Mega Pizza and Paul’s Place.

Following the inspection in August, Paul’s Place in Mexborough was closed down by the council after evidence of significant rat activity was found on the premises.

No-one from Paul’s Place was available for comment, but owner Paul Nagy told the South Yorkshire Times last month that Doncaster council’s environmental health department refused to help him when he asked them for help with his rat infestation.

Mr Nagy, who has run the shop in in Simpson Place, Mexborough, for 25 years, said he had spent over £500 in pest control measures in the weeks leading up to the inspection, but he had been unable to rid the shop of its vermin problem.

Mega Pizza declined to comment on their 0 star hygiene rating.

A further 18 outlets in the Dearne failed to receive the minimum three-star rating.

Conversely, 55 South Yorkshire foot outlets received an impressive five-star rating for their hygiene standards.

All of the ratings published here are based on inspections carried out by the FSA over the last 12 months, which can be found on their website

The ratings published here are correct as of 11am on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.
