Eating out this Christmas?
Spelthorne Council is calling on residents to check the food hygiene ratings of restaurants before booking their Christmas meals.
Christmas is a time to enjoy good company and good food without worrying about food poisoning. But the truth is, you can't tell a restaurant's hygiene standards by how busy or clean it appears.
Put your mind at rest by checking the food hygiene rating before you choose where to eat. These ratings are determined by our Environmental Health Officers who inspect all the Borough's food outlets and give a rating out of 5.
