A zero star rating means “urgent improvement necessary” while one star means “major improvement necessary”.

How unhygienic does a food outlet need to be to get a zero-star rating?

The good news is that 89 restaurants and takeaways in Scarborough are rated as Five Star.

From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.

Eateries are judged on three criteria:

-How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.

-The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities

-How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
