The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in Eastbourne
Look for the stickers in windows of restaurants, takeaways and food shops, or certificates displayed inside the premises

About the Scheme

This National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme has been developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in partnership with local authorities.

The aim is to provide members of the public with easily accessible information on food hygiene standards to allow them to make a more informed choice of where to eat out or shop for food.

Please visit the Food Standards Agency website for more information about the Scheme as a whole.

Appeals, Right to Reply and Revisits

In order to ensure that the scheme is fair to businesses, it has been designed to include a number of safeguards. These are:

  • An appeal procedure.

  • A ‘right to re-apply’.

  • An opportunity to request a re-visit when improvements have been made in order to be re-assessed for a ‘new’ rating.
