A BURGER restaurant in Lymm needs to make 'major improvements' for food hygiene, an inspection has found.

Stacked, which can be found at 31 The Cross, in Lymm, was given a hygiene rating of one-out-of-five by the Food Standards Agency following its latest inspection.

There is often a delay between an inspection taking place and the results being made available on the FSA's website.

Stacked was inspected by an officer on October 6.

When carrying out an inspection, the FSA assesses an establishment on the following criteria:

  • Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage.
  • Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene.

Stacked was rated 'generally satisfactory' in terms of hygienic food handling and the cleanliness and condition of the building and facilities.

However, the restaurant must make 'major improvements' regarding the management of food safety.

All information is taken from the FSA and is accurate at the time of writing.
