Ivy Lodge were visited by The Food Standards Agency on the 24th  November 2022. We are pleased and proud to be able to say we received a food hygiene rating of 5!

5 is the top of the scale, this means the hygiene standards are very good and fully comply with the law.

To get the top rating, businesses must do well in all three elements which are.

  1. How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
  2. The physical condition of the business –including cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation, pest control and other facilities
  3. How the business manages ways of keeping food safe, looking at processes, training and systems to ensure good hygiene is maintained. The officer can then assess the level of confidence in standards being maintained in the future.
