Food Hygiene Rating Data in Oxford City Council

$447.50 / year

This dataset provides the food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business and reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection or visit by the local authority. Businesses include restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels and other places consumers eat, as well as supermarkets. The data is held on behalf of local authorities participating in the Food Standards Agency’s National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.


The food hygiene rating reflects the hygiene standards found at the time the business is inspected by a food safety officer. These officers are specially trained to assess food hygiene standards.

A food safety officer inspects a business to check that it meets the requirements of food hygiene law. The officer is from the local authority where the business is located.

At the inspection, the officer will check:
– How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
– The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
– 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

Each of these three elements is essential for making sure that food hygiene standards meet requirements and the food served or sold to customers is safe to eat.

The hygiene standards found at the time of inspection are then rated on a scale. At the bottom of the scale is ‘0’ – this means urgent improvement is required. At the top of the scale is ‘5’ – this means the hygiene standards are very good.

If the top rating is not given, the officer will explain to the person who owns or manages the business what improvements need to be made and what action they can take to improve their hygiene rating.
