Each business is given a hygiene rating from 0-5 when it is inspected by a food safety officer from the council, and a database is kept by the Food Standards Agency. 


A five-star rating means “very good”, a four-star rating means “good” and a three-star rating is “generally satisfactory”. 


A zero rating signifies “urgent improvement necessary” and a one-star rating indicates “major improvement necessary”. 


Last month we revealed the 4 Northampton businesses which had been given a one-star rating.

The inspection criteria includes: 


•How hygienically the food is handled
