A Halesowen sports and social club is delighted after a reinspection gave it a top five-star rating.

Coombs Wood Sports and Social Club on Stewarts Road was given the five-star rating on May 24, the Food Standards Agency’s website shows.

The club was gutted when it was handed a one-star rating back in November 2021 due to an issue with paperwork regarding allergies.

It was given a five-star rating last January and has just been handed another five-star rating after a re-inspection. 

Club steward Dawn Bubb said she was delighted with the five-star rating. 

She said: "It's great - after everything we have been through we are really pleased."

New hygiene ratings have also been handed to a cafe, play centre and a takeaway, the Food Standards Agency’s website shows – and it’s great news for them all.

Primrose Cafe at 53a Cradley Road, Netherton, was given a five-star rating on May 23.

Scallywags at Level Street, Brierley Hill, was also given a five rating on May 22.

Mrs B's Deli and Sandwich Bar at 30 Louise Street, Lower Gornal, Dudley was also given a five rating on May 9.

A hygiene rating of 0 means urgent improvement is required; 1 means "major improvement is necessary."

A 2 star rating means "some improvement is necessary", while 3 star means "hygiene standards are generally satisfactory" and 4 star means "hygiene standards are good."

A 5 star rating means "hygiene standards are very good."
