24 August (Part 2) - Bexley worst in country for food hygiene

RatNot a failure to be laid directly at Bexley council’s door and arguably quite the reverse but the shocking facts are that food establishments in Bexley are the least hygienic in the whole country.

Bexley council in common with all local authorities now rates the food hygiene standards for all businesses in its area. You can search for your local restaurant or takeaway here. All my local outlets score zero or one out of five. 8·46% of establishments in Bexley scored zero. “Urgent improvement necessary.”

There is no requirement to exhibit the rating but a National Trust café I was in last Sunday was proudly showing its score of five. The highest possible score. Mind you, at their prices I would expect nothing less.
