Food hygiene ratings in Bristol: the takeaways, restaurants & cafes given top 5-star ratings in December 2022

These Bristol restaurants and takeaways were given top marks by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) when they were inspected in December 2022.

Bristol is bustling with restaurants, takeaways and cafes to treat yourself in, so much so that it can be difficult to choose where to go. For many, a food firm’s hygiene rating is a key factor when deciding where to eat and spend money, so we’ve rounded up the restaurants, takeaways and cafes in the city that have been given top marks by hygiene inspectors recently.

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 Food Standards Agency. 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. Here are the latest restaurants and takeaways in Bristol to be given the full five stars in their food hygiene inspections in December 2022, according to data published by the FSA.
