New food hygiene ratings have been awarded to 11 of Southend’s establishments this month.

We have taken a look at the latest ratings to see how restaurants, takeaways and other establishments which sell food have fared.

What do the numbers mean?

0 - urgent improvement necessary

1 - major improvements necessary

2 - improvements necessary

3 - business generally satisfactory

4 - business good on assessment

5 - business seen as very good

Each restaurant is also judged on three categories ‘food hygiene and safety’, ‘structural compliance’ and ‘confidence in management’.
