A DUDLEY tea room has been handed a new four-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

Mad Hatters of Dudley, in Louise Street, Lower Gornal, was given the score after assessment on February 8, the Food Standards Agency's website shows.

It means that of Dudley's 370 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 226 (61 per cent) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

The ratings have been published on the Food Standards Agency’s website which rates businesses from zero to five so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good, four means hygiene standards are good, three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary, a rating of one means major improvement is necessary and a rating of zero means urgent improvement is required.

People can see the results of all food hygiene inspections on the national ratings.food.gov.uk website.
