The worst hygiene-rated restaurants in Bromley and Lewisham

Hygiene is always important when picking a restaurant to visit, but never has it been more crucial with the country returning to eateries with Covid-19 still lingering.

Whilst the pandemic will still be on many people’s mind, the public will be looking forward to returning to their favourites and trying new destinations which will hopefully live up to expectations.

So we’ve compiled a list of the restaurants and cafes with the lowest food hygiene ratings in south east London’s Bromley, which has a total of 2,394 venues it its local authority remit, and Lewisham, which has 2,475.

The following list was calculated on the Food Standards Agency’s 0-5 tier system, and features all restaurants featuring on the agency’s website listed under ‘0’ or ‘1’ in Bromley and Lewisham.

To be as update to date as possible, the list only includes reviews since the beginning of 2019, up until April 17, 2021.

The agency says ‘0’ ratings = “Urgent Improvement Necessary”.

Food Agency

Inspectors from the agency who review food hygiene in restaurants to later apply the ratings check the following three elements:

  • How hygienically the food is handled: how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
  • The condition of the structure of the buildings: the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
  • How the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe and so that the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future

The below list of ‘0’ and ‘1’-rated restaurants includes their listed address and the date of their last inspection by the Food Standards Agency.
