Most of the venues – which range from McDonald’s and Greggs outlets to small takeaways and delis secured top, five-out-of-five ratings, with the lowest a ‘generally satisfactory’ rating of three for a Chinese takeaway.

Food hygiene inspectors regularly visit venues before awarding them ratings from zero to five.

A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency said: “The scheme helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you clear information about the businesses’ hygiene standards.”

Ratings available are:

Five – hygiene standards are very good;

Four – hygiene standards are good;

Three – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory;

Two – some improvement is necessary;

One – major improvement is necessary;

Zero – urgent improvement is required.
