Hygiene award for town pub

The Rhinoceros pub in Rotherham has gained the top rating for its levels of hygiene in the town’s Scores on the Doors programme run by Rotherham Council.

The pub in Bridgegate was awarded a five star rating by the council’s inspectors.

Scores on the Doors aims to highlight hygiene standards in pubs, restaurants, takeaways and clubs across the borough, with judges looking at how hygienic and well managed the food preparation is.

Pub manager Kirsty Horner said: “I am delighted that we have gained the top rating and I’m sure our customers will welcome the news too.

“Standards of hygiene at the pub are of paramount importance.

“All of the staff work hard to ensure that the pub offers its customers the highest levels of hygiene at all times.”
