Isle of Wight food outlets draw praise

Eateries on the Isle of Wight have been commended by a council official for their excellent hygiene standards.

According to Barry Abraham of the Isle of Wight Council, more than half of the island's food premises have the maximum five-star rating from the Scores on the Doors scheme.

This measurement was introduced three years ago to gauge the level of hygiene in every establishment that serves food to members of the public.

As a result, consumers can be confident their meal was properly prepared when they eat out at high-ranking pubs and restaurants.

"This is very good news, considering the sheer number of food businesses we have here," said Mr Abraham, who added that many more eateries on the Isle of Wight have four-star ratings.

He was speaking after a five-star rating was handed to Abigail's Kitchen in Watchbell Lane, Newport.

The establishment is the 1,000th food outlet to be given the highest possible classification.

People on Isle of Wight holidays can easily find out which eateries have five-star ratings by searching the Scores on the Doors website.
