Black Country pub receives second-lowest score in latest food hygiene ratings

Another set of 24 food hygiene ratings have been handed out to businesses selling food in the Black Country and Staffordshire.

And while it's good news for 15 of those businesses who have received top marks, a pub from Brierley Hill and a Smethwick takeaway have received the second-lowest score of one.

The Food Standards Agency works with councils across the country to inspect takeaways, pubs, restaurants and any other retailers that sell food on its hygiene standards. These inspections include assessing handling food, cleanliness of the business and food safety management. It is not a guide to food quality.

Businesses can receive one of six ratings ranging from zero, the lowest score possible which means urgent improvement is necessary, to five, meaning it has very good standards.
