HERE are all of the food hygiene ratings handed out to businesses in Andover in April.

Food hygiene ratings, which are conducted by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), give businesses a score from five, meaning hygiene standards are very good, to zero, which means urgent improvement is required.

The handling of food, cleanliness and condition of the building and facilities, and the officer's confidence in the establishment, are assessed by food safety officers.

Three establishments were handed a 'very good' rating, the FSA website shows.
