Food and Drink Store Ratings

As Copmanthorpe has grown from a village into a detached suburb its shops have transformed to meet the needs of the community. Many of these shops now sell food or drink for consumption on and off the premises. It is a legal requirement for these businesses to be registered with the local authority and to be inspected on a regular basis. In 2009 The City of York Council joined the "Scores on the Doors" scheme where "local food businesses that serve food direct to the consumer will be awarded a star rating based on standards found at their most recent food hygiene inspection."

The majority of Copmanthorpe's Food businesses have received a 3 Star (satisfactory) or above review and will have received certificates to display on their premises.

When a store is inspected it is given a score for three different things: Confidence in Management, Hygiene and Structure. The overall star rating for the store is calculated from these three categories. The scheme was changed in 2011 and the "excellent" rating was removed, making it a lot easier to get 5 stars (very good). The Annexe is Copmanthorpe's only 5 Star store that has scored full marks in all three categories and scored excellent on the old system!

Since the scheme started several of Copmanthorpe's stores have been inspected and have improved their ratings so it appears that making this information public is driving up hygiene and safety.

Stores are inspected around about every 18 months at which point they are given a new score. We will try and keep this page up to date, but if you do notice that a store has a new score please use our enquiry form to let us know.
