Request a food hygiene rescore

If you have made changes to your food hygiene practices after your last food safety inspection you can request a visit to re-inspect your premises.

Your food hygiene rating score could stay the same or go or down.

You can apply for a rescore as many times as you want.

You’ll need to pay £202.90 each time your request a rescore.

  • last inspection date and details 
  • current food hygiene rating
