Food Hygiene Rating Scheme Appeal Form

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food. The scheme gives you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels, and other places you like to go to eat out, as well as supermarkets and other food shops.

As the food business operator of the establishment you have the right to appeal the food hygiene rating given following your inspection if you do not agree that the rating reflects the hygiene standards and management controls found at the time of the inspection

You have 21 days (including weekends and bank holidays) from the date of receipt of the notification letter to lodge and appeal. Your rating will be reviewed and the outcome of your appeal communicated to you within 21 days
