PUBS, chip shops and schools are among the businesses that have been given five star food hygiene ratings from health inspectors.

Ratings are judged by Food Standards Agency (FSA) inspectors over the standards in the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and pest control, how food safety is managed and evidence staff know about food safety.

A number of businesses have the five star rating, the highest available, in the city.

Among the most recent five stars inspectors have awarded are:

Broomfields Farm Shop, in Holt Heath (August 2)

Meneki Ramen, Farrier Street (August 6)

Lyppard Fryer, Ankerage Green (August 13)

Time To Eat, The Hopmarket, The Foregate (August 19)

Creams Cafe Worcester, St Nicholas Street (August 19)

Age UK Worcester And District Lunch Club

Your’s Pizza Bite / Little India in Ronkswood Hill

Groszek in Lowesmoor

Thai Gallery Restaurant, Friar Street
