Food hygiene ratings in Southwark: the takeaways and restaurants given top 5-star ratings in December 2022

Fourteen Southwark restaurants and takeaways have been given a five star rating for hygiene, here’s the full list

London is home to around 15,000 restaurants and some of the best in the UK such as Gordon Ramsay, Kerridge’s Bar and Grill and more. Southwark has many restaurants, and it can be hard to choose between sometimes.

To potentially narrow down all of the restaurants available, you can use the Food Hygiene ratings given to establishments each month, which is a great guide, allowing you to choose a place to dine at.

In Southwark, 14 restaurants have been awarded the coveted five stars, giving you a range of different eateries where hygiene is very good. In there is a Nando’s, which is infamous for their chicken and great tasting food.

Here are the latest restaurants and takeaways/restaurants and cafes/takeaways and sandwich shops in Southwark to be given the full five stars in their food hygiene inspections in December 2022, according to data published by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

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.
