A COSY country pub and a riding school café in the Cirencester area have been handed new hygiene ratings.

The Victoria Inn in Eastleach was handed a four-out-of-five rating after an assessment on Wednesday, September 13.

On the same day the café at the Talland School Of Equitation - which is situated at Dairy Farm, Ampney Knowle, Ampney Crucis - was also given a score of four.

Food hygiene ratings reflect the hygiene standards which are found on the day of inspection by the local authority. 

The three areas which are inspected by a food safety officer are the food handling, the conditions of the facilities and the management of food safety.
