THERE ARE 579 restaurants, pubs and hotels in Oldham.

50 of those have a food hygiene rating of three, meaning conditions are rated as 'generally satisfactory'.

The food hygiene rating scheme is designed to help shoppers decide where to eat out or buy food.

The rating gives customers an idea of how well the business is keeping the takeaway clean and tidy.

A food hygiene rating is worked out by a food safety officer who visits the business to see if it meets the requirements of food hygiene law.
