Food Hygiene Rating Scheme
Newport City Council has adopted the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme to help consumers make an informed choice about where to eat out.
Food outlets are inspected, unannounced, by Environmental Health Officers, to check hygiene standards and operating procedures, which are then rated on a scale from 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good).
These ‘Scores on Doors’ are an indication of how hygienic and well-managed the food preparation is at each food premises.
The venues listed on this website have been inspected and achieved a rating of 3 (generally satisfactory) or more.
View food premises ratings (opens new website) and search by post code e.g. NP20, the word “Newport” (your search will pull through businesses in other Newports!), by restaurant name or by using the map
