The inspection report states both the hygienic food handling and the management of food safety are generally satisfactory whilst improvement is necessary for the cleanliness and condition of facilities and building.

A spokesperson for the eatery shared a comment on the Food Standards Agency’s website, which said: “Bill and Coo’s application for a rescore is already ongoing and will more accurately reflect the current changes that new management has put in place, since this inspection.

“The kitchen is undergoing renovation, including upgrading, and replacing equipment, altering the kitchen layout to ensure efficiency and completing minor changes to wall surfaces.

“Cleaning and paperwork schedules have been immediately rewritten and followed to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and deep cleaning.

“A new and experienced staff and management team have been employed to ensure that operations are more clean, organised, and consistent.

“All recommendations for our previous food hygiene score of 4/5 have been upheld and the business and Bill and Coo has immediately acted upon this most recent advice.

“Newly considered roles and responsibilities within the business have significantly improved standards and this will continue.”
