THE popular Sea World fish and chip shop has bounced back from a poor hygiene inspection to receive a four-star rating.

Seaworld Fish Restaurant on Burnham High Street received the second lowest hygiene rating in its inspection on March 19, 2024.

This rating underlined the food safety officer’s concerns, particularly regarding the restaurant’s competence to ensure that their food served or sold is safe for consumption and that their staff have adequate knowledge about food safety.

Food hygiene ratings are a vital component of ensuring the safety and quality of food establishments in the United Kingdom.

These ratings, prominently displayed in windows and available online, provide consumers with essential information about the hygiene standards of restaurants, cafes, and canteens across the country. 

Seaworld has since been inspected again and has received a four rating.

A hygiene rating of four means hygiene standards are good. 

Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.

This includes the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.
