Thorpe kitchen recently had a visit from an environmental health officer of Tendring District Council to assess its food hygiene. 

The 5 star scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales and is the same that applies to restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, supermarkets and other food shops. Further details of the scheme can be found at:

Our kitchens at both sites have previously attained 5 stars - the top rating. The result of this visit was for the Thorpe kitchen to retain its rating. We now wait for the EHO to visit Frinton - they turn up totally unannounced. 

Well done to our catering manager, Ben Everett and his team.
