A BRIERLEY Hill fast food restaurant has been handed a new five-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

McDonald's, at The Boulevard, Merry Hill, was given the maximum score after assessment on June 20, the Food Standards Agency's website shows.

It means that of Dudley's 372 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 226 (61 per cent) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

Ratings are published on the Food Standards Agency’s website which rates businesses from zero to five so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good.

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