PUB in Buckinghamshire was given a new hygiene rating.

The Griffin pub in Chesham was given a food hygiene score following an inspection on January 5.

The pub on Bellingdon Road was handed a three-out-of-five rating, the Food Standards Agency’s website showed.

Three rating means the food hygiene standards are generally satisfactory.

The landlady Pat Miller commented the new score: “I’m quite happy sitting in the middle, I feel okay about it.”

It means that of Buckinghamshire's 445 pubs, bars and nightclubs with ratings, 305 (69 percent) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

The Griffin was recently forced to cut down its kitchen hours because of increased cost of gas, electric and beer, but the pub remains open.

“January February are the harder months for anybody. I do believe things are starting to pick up. 

“I’m feeling a bit more positive,” Pat added.
