It's top marks for Wotton's Royal Oak
The Royal Oak Inn in Wotton-under-Edge has been awarded the maximum mark possible for food hygiene in a new scheme being launched by Stroud District Council.

The Royal Oak Inn in Wotton-under-Edge has been awarded the maximum mark possible for food hygiene in a new scheme being launched by Stroud District Council.

Set to replace the previous ‘Scores on the Doors’ website the new scheme, due to be launched on 1st March, is adopting the Food Standards Agency's National Food Hygiene Rating system to publish information about the standards of food safety in local establishments. With reference to a website, the scheme will at-a-glance help you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels and other places you eat, as well as supermarkets and other food shops.

Chef Nick Boston is delighted with the news. He said: “We are a family run pub and this justifies the time and effort we have put in since we took it over just under a year ago. It isn’t just about clean kitchens. It also covers our record keeping and the way we handle food.”

Nick’s partner Emily Nash who runs the bars is equally delighted. She said: “This has come at just the right time. There has been some local rumour that we were going to be leaving the pub. It couldn’t be more wrong. We are here to stay and we are going to be working hard to become the best pub offering the best food in the area.”
