Best pubs, cafes and bars for food safety in Blaenau Gwent

SEVERAL restaurants, cafes and pubs in Blaenau Gwent have been recognized for their exceptional levels of food hygiene and safety.

If you are looking for a place to eat in Blaenau Gwent, you are spoiled for choice. One way to choose between them is to look at the food hygiene ratings.

Every business that serves food is required by law to be inspected. After inspection by the local authority, they are then graded from five – meaning the standards are excellent – ​​to zero – meaning urgent improvement is needed.

Inspectors rate companies on the following three elements:

  • How food is handled hygienically: How it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored;
  • The cleanliness and condition of the buildings: Cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities;
  • Food safety management: How the company manages what it does to ensure food is safe to eat and whether the agent can be confident that standards will be maintained in the future.

These ratings are listed on the Food Standards Agency website.

If businesses get three five consecutive hygiene scores, they qualify for a Scores On The Doors elite award and can be considered best in class for food safety.

A total of 39 locals in Blaenau Gwent have qualified for an Elite Award from scoresonthedoors.org.uk, as of 15 September 2022 – although this includes schools, shops and rugby and social clubs.

Here are the places where you can dine.
