Marco Pierre White restaurant gets one star hygiene rating after inspection.

March 2014 – ZERO Star Rating

March 2018 – ONE Star Rating

Marco Pierre White restaurant has been given a one star hygiene rating in its latest in a string of hygiene standards failures.

The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill in Birmingham was found not to be storing or handling food hygienically after an inspection by environmental health officers on 12 March 2018. Dirty sponges, extensive dirt and mould in the utensil trays in the pot wash and old food debris encrusting the extendable tap were some of the findings.

The report concluded that the rooftop restaurant, which in March 2014 received a zero rating by the council, required “major improvement” in the way food was handled and prepared as well as the way it was safely monitored to ensure it was safe to eat.

Last year White’s New York Italian restaurant in Bloomsbury received a hygiene score of just 2 out of 5 following an investigation by the Food Standards Agency.

A spokeswoman for the restaurant confirmed they will be appealing the rating. She said: “We have appealed the latest EHO score.”



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
