Those planning festive meals with colleagues, friends or family are being urged by the Food Standards Agency to ‘look before you book’.
FSA food hygiene ratings will reveal hygiene standards in restaurants and other food businesses. Ratings go from 0-5, with a 5 rating being the highest level of food hygiene.
South Ribble Councillor Phil Smith said: “Businesses should be proud of their hygiene rating and display them where everyone can see.
“ The message is look before you book this Christmas.”
Ratings available from: www.food.gov.uk/ratings. Alternatively, ask to see the premises’s FSA sticker.
