An MKFM analysis of the latest figures from the Food Standards Agency has revealed that there are 16 cafes, take-away's, restaurants, schools and venues in Milton Keynes with a zero or one star food hygiene rating.
The ratings are intended as a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.
It includes the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.
Two establishments in Milton Keynes have a zero star hygiene rating, which means that urgent improvement is necessary.
Those establishments with a one star hygiene rating in Milton Keynes are ones in which a major improvement has been deemed as necessary.

CORRECTION (31/12/18 10:50): An earlier version of this article stated that Golden Palace in Bletchley was rated one-star. Milton Keynes Council have informed us today that the restaurant was re-inspected at the end of November and awarded a four-star rating. This has not yet reflected on the official food.gov website, which is due to be updated in January.
