NEW food hygiene ratings have been awarded to two Stourbridge eateries, the Food Standards Agency’s website shows.

Breakfast Diner, in Stour Vale Road, Lye, was handed a three-out-of-five rating after an assessment on June 28.

And Balti Dilshad, in Hagley Road, Oldswinford, Stourbridge, was given a score of two when assessed by food hygiene inspectors on June 28.

It means that of Dudley's 369 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 225 (61 per cent) have ratings of five and just one has a zero rating.

The ratings have been 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 three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary.

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