Five stars for six more food establishments

ANOTHER round of food scores for businesses in West Somerset has been announced by the district council’s environmental health team.
Local businesses which prepare, cook, or sell food have their food hygiene standards rated on a star system.
An award of five stars demonstrates excellent compliance, while an award of no stars indicates there are major breaches in food hygiene standards.
Top of the scoreboard after the latest environmental health checks with five stars were:
  • Andrews on the Weir, Porlock Weir

  • Blenheim Lodge, Minehead

  • Bridge Cottage, Winsford

  • Broadlands, Minehead

  • Burger King, Butlins Skyline, Minehead

  • Castle Coffee House, Dunster
Earning a commendable four stars were:
  • Alcombe Tandoori, Alcombe

  • Amoy Noodle Bar, Butlins Skyline, Minehead
  • Binham Grange, Old Cleeve

  • Chives, Watchet
  • Dulverton Middle and Community School, Dulverton

  • Finnigans, Butlins Skyline, Minehead

  • Hathaways, Dunster

  • Holnicote House, Selworthy
  • McDana's, Minehead

  • Minehead Middle School, Minehead
Portfolio holder for well-being, Councillor Kate Kravis, said: “Whether it is a takeaway or top restaurant, your children’s school dinners or your grandparents’ care home, this scheme can help people decide where they want to spend their hard-earned money.
“Food scores aims to raise standards of food hygiene and I would encourage people to check out how well their favourite food retailer fares.”
Businesses are required to display a sticker on their premises which shows the number of stars awarded, and the food scores are also available online at
