A STOURBRIDGE pub has been handed a new five-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

The Gigmill, on South Road, Norton, was given the top score after an assessment on July 20, the Food Standards Agency's website shows.

The landmark pub has been reinspected after receiving a rating of two at a previous inspection on March 29.

Following the latest visit, inspectors said the hygienic handling of food at the Gigmill was good as were the cleanliness and condition of the building and the management of food safety.

The FSA rates businesses from zero to five so customers can make informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good, four means hygiene standards are good, three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary, a rating of one means major improvement is necessary and a rating of zero means urgent improvement is required.

People can see the results of all food hygiene inspections via Dudley Council’s website or on the national ratings.food.gov.uk website.
