DECIDING where to dine out can be a hard task when there's so much variety to choose from, but it could be worth checking this list to see where it might be worth avoiding.

Hygiene and food safety is always important when it comes to picking a restaurant, especially with Covid concerns still in the back of people's minds.

And with hygiene now important more than ever before, we've compiled a list of the restaurants and cafes with the best and worst food hygiene scores in the borough of Bracknell, which has a total of 116 venues within its local authority.

The following list was calculated on the Food Standards Agency's 0-5 tier system, and features all restaurants featuring on the agency's website listed under '0' or '1' in Bracknell.

To be as update to date as possible, the list only includes reviews since the beginning of 2020, up until June 2021.

The food standards agency says '0' ratings = "Urgent Improvement Necessary".

Inspectors from the agency who review food hygiene in restaurants to later apply the ratings check the following three elements:

How hygienically the food is handled: how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.

The condition of the structure of the buildings: the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities.

How the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe and so that the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.
