Hundreds of London restaurants have a zero star rating for food hygiene

Eddy Frankel

You know what’s absolutely disgusting? London. Seriously, this city is in a right state. You want proof? This map shows the number of restaurants, pubs and takeaways in each borough which have received a zero star rating for food hygiene from the Food Standards Agency. ITV, which revealed the figures, described the situation as ‘London’s food hygiene shame’, though shame isn’t the primary emotion you’ll be feeling the morning after eating in some of these places. Just regret and severe abdominal pain. So maybe avoid the gottier eateries of Camden, Ealing, Croydon and (surprisingly) Westminster, but feel free to stuff yourself to the gills in Havering, wherever that is. You can check the ratings of your regular haunts and ‘that nice little place you know’ on the FSA’s website. Bon apétit!

And it's not just our restaurants - Euston has been voted the dirtiest station in the country.
