A HALESOWEN cafe is celebrating after receiving a five star hygiene rating.

Fenn's Cafe, on Vicarage Road, was given the top score after an assessment on May 18.

It had been given a one star rating on March 15, but owner Lorraine Fenn requested a re-assessment.

Lorraine, aged 46, said the one star was awarded due to an issue with paperwork and not hygiene.

She said: "We're really pleased to have the five star rating.

"We just want people to know we have the new rating.

"It was never an issue with hygiene - it was to do with paperwork which is all 100 per cent in order now."

Lorraine, who lives in Rowley Regis, has run the cafe for 12 years.

The cafe serves items including breakfasts and burgers and chips and is open from 8am till 1.30pm Monday to Friday and from 8am till 12.30pm on Saturdays.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good, four means hygiene standards are good, three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary, a rating of one means major improvement is necessary and a rating of zero means urgent improvement is required.

People can see the results of all food hygiene inspections at eateries across the Dudley borough via Dudley Council’s website or on the national ratings.food.gov.uk website.
