TWELVE food businesses in Wyre Forest have been recognised in a new scheme for consistently achieving high food standards.

The Triple 5 scheme celebrates eateries that gain the top level 5 Food Hygiene Rating and maintain it for at least three inspections – a cycle which takes about six years to complete.

Restaurants, cafes, take-aways and catering vans that achieve Triple 5 status will be sent a letter from Worcestershire Regulatory Services, who carry out food hygiene inspections for Wyre Forest, which they can display to customers.

The following buisnesses have been awarded Triple 5 status:

  • Arley Arboretum, Arley Arboretum, Upper Arley, Bewdley
  • Cow Shed Café, 8 Barracks Road, Sandy Lane Industrial Estate, Stourport On Severn
  • Green Street Grill, Green Street, Kidderminster
  • Greggs, Unit 6, Weavers Wharf, Kidderminster
  • KFC, 123 Stourport Road, Kidderminster
  • Kidderminster Fish Bar, 95 New Road, Kidderminster
  • Land Oak, Birmingham Road, Kidderminster
  • Marlpool Garden, 43 Willowfield Drive, Kidderminster
  • Severn Valley Railway Holdings, Severn Valley Railway Station, Station Approach, Kidderminster
  • Starbucks Drive Thru, 123A Stourport Road, Kidderminster
  • The King and Castle, Station Approach, Kidderminster
  • The Kings Arms, 21 Redhouse Road, Stourport On Severn

If a business fails to maintain a five rating at future inspections, they will lose Triple 5 status.
