AN INDIAN restaurant in Brimscombe has recently received a low food hygiene grade.

The Pavillion in London Road was handed a two-out-of-five rating after an assessment on April 26. 

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.

The Pavillion received ‘generally satisfactory’ in hygienic food handling and management of food safety. 

Meanwhile, the restaurant received ‘improvement necessary’ for cleanliness and condition of facilities and building. 

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