GRAFTON Street Cafe has jumped from a food hygiene rating of one to the highest score available to inspectors.

The eatery on Grafton Street, which opened in November, was handed a rating of five, which was published on the food hygiene website on Friday with inspectors grading the business as ‘very good’.

The cafe was rated on how the food was handled, how hygiene procedures were documented and the layout of the venue.

It had previously been reported in the Warrington Guardian that the cafe had been told to improve following an inspection from hygiene officers.

Owner Rick Askew said the main problems flagged up by inspectors was a lack of paper work on food safety, which has since been corrected.

He added: “I want to assure customers that we run a clean kitchen.”

East Orient has also seen its rating improved to a four after inspectors visited the restaurant earlier this year.

The eatery was commended as ‘good’ by hygiene inspectors after it was previously told to improve.
