Restaurants should be forced to display their rating but of course only businesses with a top rating of 4 or 5 do this
So while a place might be spotless to the eye, there may be a lack of planning, training and paperwork in the background resulting in a low score.
I hope this isn't considered advertising (please delete if it is) but if any of you order takeaway from Just Eat, Hungry House or Deliveroo you may be interested in a Google Chrome extension my partner and I made: https://munchdb.com
It's a free tool that once installed displays the official hygiene ratings on those takeaway sites without you having to do any manual searching. JustEat have just started providing the ratings in results themselves (after substantial prodding!) but they seem to still be testing it and get a lot of them wrong. The other sites have made no effort to add the listings to their sites as far as I'm aware, so we aim to prod them in that direction. Hope it helps.
Ah emu, that is great news! I definitely hadn't confused it - I am however guilty of not looking up the rating in the past 6 months. Really happy to see they've sorted out whatever the issue was as the food is incredible.
I am the best judge of taste and food hygiene as I like what I like and am sick as a dog if it is not good food hygiene wise. I think Masters is excellent and sometimes the "system" does not do justice to those who do not have English as a first language or those who don't play the game because they have done it for a lifetime better.
I have undertaken and passed a food hygiene course myself and many small businesses do have excellent standards but either the premises or the training let them down. I am not so anal that I need to see a 4 or 5 star rating based on three years ago..because I know that means nothing as well.
