WORCESTER residents love to grab a coffee and a bite to eat at a cafe, but with the city spoilt for choice have you ever thought which are the best for food hygiene?

Ratings are judged on a scale of 0 (meaning ‘urgent improvement is necessary’) to 5 (meaning ‘very good’), and are given out by Worcestershire Regulatory Services inspectors.

We have taken a look at the current hygiene ratings for cafes across Worcester, and put together this handy list:
