Greggs is possibly the most popular bakery in the country and a regular on many people's lunch menu.

Brighton hosts four of the chain's branches, meaning you are never too far from a Steak Bake or Glazed Ring Doughnut.

If you ever wondered though which is the best when it comes to cleanliness, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) make their hygiene ratings public, meaning it's easy to discover how restaurants and take aways scored.

The inspections are carried out by the local authority and findings are updated on the FSA website whenever there is a new inspection.


What the ratings mean:

There are six different ratings that a venue can be awarded from 0 to 5.

  • 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

How is Greggs assessed?

Inspectors look at a few different key elements when assessing the hygiene of a restaurant including: 

How hygienically the food is handled- such as how its prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled, and stored.

The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation, and other facilities.

How the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe so the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.
