Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

Our food officers regularly inspect food businesses in Welwyn Hatfield, such as restaurants, takeaways and pubs. This is to check their hygiene standards meet legal requirements.

The ratings from these inspections are published on the Food Hygiene Ratings website.

Following a rating, businesses have a right to reply (an opportunity for you to explain things to your customers and outline any actions taken since the inspection).

Request a food hygiene revisit

You can request revisit. Please note you must be able to provide sufficient information and evidence to show that work has been undertaken to make improvements to overcome the issues raised. The charge for a revisit is £227.


You can also appeal your rating, please contact us first to ensure you understand why the rating was given.

Visit the Food Standards Agency website to request an appeal
