Ten businesses in the Bailiwick of Guernsey have been rated as one star for food hygiene according to Environmental Health.

Being rated as one star means 'major improvement is necessary'.

The scheme is being extended to include all businesses which prepare food, meaning there will no longer be exemptions.

We think this will give further reassurances to the public that even the low risk businesses they are being inspected and they are being contacted.

– Tobin Cook, Director of Environmental Health

The following establishments have been given the rating;

  • Alderney Golf Club
  • Bumps Bistro Alderney
  • Iceland, Vale Avenue
  • La Trelade Hotel
  • Les Alouettes Residential Care Home
  • McAllisters Fish Alderney
  • Saye Beach Campsite Alderney
  • St Anne's Guest House
  • White D'Or
  • Rohais Chinese Take-Away

We're not able to visit on a daily basis as we do here, but when we find there are businesses that need improvements, we need to improve our communication so that when we do visit again we get some reassurance problems are being dealt with.

– Tobin Cook, Director of Environmental Health
