Waiting for your first hygiene assessment? We will publish your listing before the assessment and we will review your restaurant again when the FSA have published a rating for your restaurant following their assessment.

Waiting on a higher rating to be published? If you are currently rated at 3 or below but have recently been reassessed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and now have a rating of 3 or higher, please appeal to us and attach a photocopy of the written confirmation of a higher rating as provided by the FSA. We will then be able to publish you ahead of your rating being published on the FSA website which can take a few weeks.
