Food hygiene ratings in Newcastle: the takeaways and sandwich shops given top 5-star ratings in December 2022

These are the five sandwich shops and takeaways in Newcastle that received five stars from the Food Standards Agency in their last inspection.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has awarded all five of these restaurants and sandwich shops in Newcastle five-star ratings, according to the latest data. The highest rating, five stars, indicates extremely high hygiene standards that fully abide by the law.

From swanky restaurants to hospital canteens, local authority food inspectors will visit any premise in the area that prepares, provides or distributes food and report their findings to the FSA. Every few years, the inspectors check the handling, management and preparation of food, storage and the cleanliness of facilities and then give the premises a rating from 0 to 5.

The food ratings are broken down into the following categories:

  •  5 – hygiene standards are very good; 
  • 4 – hygiene standards are good; 
  • 3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory;
  • 2 – some improvement is necessary; 
  • 1 – major improvement is necessary; 
  • 0 – urgent improvement is required.

If a restaurant or cafe has had a poor review, they do not need to display the rating but are encouraged to do so by the FSA. The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the agency.

Here are the latest takeaways and sandwich shops in Newcastle to be given the full five stars in their food hygiene inspections in December 2022, according to data published by the FSA.
