Wetherspoons is probably one of the UK's most popular pub chains with hundreds of venues up and down the country - but how do the ones in Swindon compare?

With three on our doorstep, we're never far from a cheap drink and a laugh with friends.

But with each restaurant, there comes a different standard for cleanliness and hygiene. 

And thanks to the Food Standards Agency (FSA) we get to look at what each of the hygiene ratings is for the different locations.

The inspections are carried out by the local authority and findings are updated on the FSA website whenever there is a new inspection conducted by the council. 

What the ratings mean:

There are six different ratings that a venue can be awarded from 0 to 5.

5 - Hygiene standards are very good

4 – Hygiene standards are good

3 – Hygiene standards are generally satisfactory

2 – Some improvement is necessary

1 – Major improvement is necessary

0 – Urgent improvement is required

How is Wetherspoons assessed?

Inspectors look at a few different key elements when assessing the hygiene of a restaurant including: 

How hygienically the food is handled- such as how its prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled, and stored.

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

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.
