A PARENT and toddler drop-in cafe was given a new hygiene grade. 

Tiddlywinks, based in St Lawrence Church Hall, The Shambles, High Street was given a score of five after an inspection on May 11.

Food hygiene ratings reflect the hygiene standards which are found on the day of inspection by the local authority - they are not a guide to food quality.

The three areas which are inspected by a food safety officer are the food handling, the conditions of the facilities and the management of food safety. 

Ratings are given on a score from 0-5, with five being the highest. 

What feedback did Tiddlywinks get?
