Wetherspoons is probably one of the UK’s most popular pub chains with hundreds of locations across the country – but what does the Watford branch look like?
Inspections are carried out by the local authority and the results are updated on the FSA website whenever there is a new inspection.
So it’s easy for you to find out the hygiene rating of your local Wetherspoons!
What do the different food hygiene ratings mean?
There are three different classifications under the Food Hygiene Information System.
- Pass means that they meet the legal requirements for food hygiene.
- Improvement required means that the business has failed to meet legal requirements and needs to make improvements.
- Exempt Premises means the business has been inspected by a local government food safety officer, has met the pass criteria, but does not meet the criteria to be part of the scheme. These businesses pose a low risk to people’s health in terms of food safety and you might not normally consider them a food business – for example, newsagents, pharmacies or drop-in centers selling boxes of cookies.
A new business or if there is a new owner will be listed as “Pending Inspection” and will not have a food hygiene rating.
How is Wetherspoons rated?
Inspectors look at a few different key things when evaluating a restaurant’s hygiene, including:
- The degree of hygiene with which food is handled, for example how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored.
- Structural condition of buildings – cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities.
- How the company manages what it does to ensure food is safe and so the agent can be confident that standards will be maintained in the future.
