How to appeal a food hygiene rating

Before making an appeal you should contact us to discuss our decision.

You can also request a reassessment once you have made the changes we listed at the inspection.

If you still think the food hygiene rating we have given is unfair, you have a right of appeal using the form below.

You have 21 days following the receipt of your notification of rating (including weekends and bank holidays) to appeal.
