A BRIDLINGTON business is celebrating a five-star rating in the council’s food hygiene scheme.

The XL fish and chip shop and pizzeria, in Quay Road, was awarded the hygiene rating last month.

Manager of the business Gary Harris, 33, said: “We were delighted to find out we had received the award and at the moment I believe that makes us the only pizza takeaway delivery in town that has the five-star accreditation.

“It is down to the hard work of the staff and some conscientious record keeping. It is not just a case of cleaning but proving that all of your hygiene standards are up to scratch.”

Gary, who is originally from Teesside, is ready to start his 9th summer at the helm of XL and he believes that food hygiene rating scheme is a good thing for local businesses.

“It helps customers know what they are getting, and it helps set the standards for businesses to follow,” continued Gary.
