The two Birmingham cafes with zero food hygiene ratings and 15 cafes with one star in 2024

These are the Birmingham cafes which currently have the lowest food hygiene ratings in the city

A number of cafes in Birmingham currently have a zero or one food hygiene rating.

The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at premises and online so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A 5-star rating means hygiene standards are very good, while 0 means urgent improvement is required. 1 star means major improvement is required.

Venues are marked on a number of factors, including the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.

These are the cafes across the city which currently have a 0 or 1 star ratings after their latest inspection. Some of the cafes included had their last inspection in 2023.

You can check the latest food hygiene scores online. Here are the 18 Birmingham cafes with zero of one star ratings so far this year:
