Food hygiene rating scheme

Early publication request

As a business owner or manager you can request that a rating is published before the end of the appeal period. This may be requested in order to avoid delays to publication following a requested revisit (e.g. where you are rescored to a rating of three or four). Note that this will not be necessary if you score a five.

This request must be made in writing. You must include: details of who you are; the name and address of the business; your contact information; the date of the inspection; and the rating given. We will review the request and will usually publish the rating early. Email the team with your request at
