I was just reading a thread about Capital Kebabs, on The Cut
(I've never had a bad chicken kebab there, but I do not recommend their cooked breakfast), which inspired me to write.
A friend of a friend works as a food hygiene inspector, and has told me about this site, which I've never heard mentioned by anyone else: http://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk
You just enter the details of a restaurant / cafe / hotel / pub/ whatever and find out how many stars (out of five) it got in its last inspection.
It shows, for example, that Master Superfish only scored 3 stars, the same as Fishcotheque.
You can do all sorts of searches, e.g. for all places that scored only one star in the SE1 postcode; or you can search for the butcher or cafe with the highest rating.
Worth a look, but the scores should be taken with a small pinch of salt (I expect many of us have kitchens at home that would not get a five-star rating!)
