These are the restaurants in Bromley that have been told they need major improvement by hygiene inspectors.

You'll find them around the borough including in Bromley, Beckenham, Orpington, Petts Wood, Hayes, Mottingham and Penge.

The details, correct as of March 17, have all been published on the government’s Food Standards Agency website.

Click through our gallery to have a look at the eateries hygiene inspectors gave a score of one, meaning major improvement is necessary, and zero, meaning urgent improvement is necessary.

The ratings have been given to businesses to reflect the standards of food hygiene found when they were inspected by food safety officers from Bromley Council over the past few months.

Inspectors check the following three elements:

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

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

3. 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


All the businesses featured in this article have been inspected since March last year.

As all the details are correct at the time of publishing, we will not amend or remove anything. However, we will update this page with any responses from the business owners explaining why they got a low score and what they’ve done to fix the problems.
