As happy couples across south Buckinghamshire prepare to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style on Sunday, the Bucks Free Press reveals the county’s least hygienic places to eat.

From a cosy night in with a takeaway, to pub grub or a posh meal out, most people will have plans - but are there places which should be avoided?

Below we have listed the 38* restaurants, pubs, takeaways and cafes which have been given a hygiene rating of ‘0’ or ‘1’ in the Wycombe, South Bucks and Chiltern districts, according to the Food Standards Agency.

In total, just one restaurant was given a rating of 0, while 37 others were considered to be rated 1 out of 5.

The Food Standards Agency website says: “The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme means that people can choose instead to eat out or buy food at places with higher ratings and businesses with low ratings are in danger of losing customers and so will be encouraged to improve standards more quickly and to maintain these in the future.”

Food inspectors consider how hygienically the food is handled, the condition of the structure of the buildings and how the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe and so that the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.

The rating of any re-inspected restaurants take 28 days to show on the FSA website.
