Only one Chorley business was slammed by council inspectors for its hygiene with more than 95 per cent of places achieving the recommended three stars or more.
George’s Fish and Chips, on Seymour Street, was given zero stars, meaning urgent improvement is required, for its food hygiene rating and inspectors also condemned 22 businesses which received one star, which means major improvement required.
Some of the businesses with a one star rating include The Fat Bull, on Blackburn Road, Baku Lounge, on Preston Road, Birkacre Nurseries Ltd, on Birkacre Road, and The Yew Tree Inn, on Dill Hall Brow.
Eight other businesses were given two stars, improvement necessary, but the remaining 800 achieved between three stars, meaning generally satisfactory, and five stars, meaning very good.
Pizzeria Dal Mamolo, on Spendmore Lane, Rivington Park Nursing Home, on Eaves Lane, and The Black Horse Hotel, on Pall Mall, were just some of the many businesses in Chorley to be given the full five stars by council inspectors.
And coun Alistair Bradley, leader of Chorley Council, praised the percentage of high scores. He said: “We appreciate the people that put these figures together and I think the scores will be reassuring for the people in the Chorley area.
“Our officers work with businesses to improve them which I think is the unseen side of this and I think that has a big effect on the scores.
“Now it’s about working with the places that haven’t achieved high ratings and making sure we bring them up to standard.”
