Here are the latest food hygiene ratings for cafés, restaurants, pubs and bars in Norwich under City Council jurisdiction.

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) rates food businesses on their hygiene standards, based on inspections carried out by the council's food safety officers.

Businesses are rated on a scale ranging from 0 which means 'urgent improvement necessary' to a top rating of 5 which is 'very good'.

The data paints a positive picture of the city's eateries with the majority of them being rated as 'generally satisfactory' or above.

Only one establishment in the city currently has a 0 rating. Mega Munch, on Magdalen Road, received the rating on September 29, 2017.
