The Skegness area is bucking the national food hygiene trend with a greater number of five star places to eat.

According to the Times, one in 20 restaurants in the UK are failing to comply with hygiene standards, with thousands of eateries scoring two, one or even zero stars out of five.

An investigation has revealed that there are more than 15,000 restaurants and food outlets across the United Kingdom with inadequate hygiene standards which could pose a “significant risk to consumers”.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) states that every restaurant in England and Wales should aim to reach five stars and that anything below a three does not “comply with broad safety standards”.

There are a total of 566 restaurants in Britain scoring a zero, the lowest possible rating, signalling that they need to make “urgent improvements” to their hygiene levels.

In East Lindsey, where there are 631 places to eat, there is just one with a zero rating from last year and 11 rated one star this year. However, there are more than 400 places to eat in the Skegness area which carry a five star rating .
