REVEALED: The three Bournemouth restaurants given zero ratings in food hygiene inspections

Cafe Treviso

Westbourne Tandoori

Tara’s

THESE three eating places in Bournemouth have all failed on food hygiene after being visited by council inspectors.

  • Cafe Treviso in Wimborne Road
  • Tara’s in the Triangle
  • Westbourne Tandoori in Westbourne.

In every case the establishments failed all three categories – food hygiene safety procedures, structural requirements and the confidence in the management and managing of documents.

The inspections were carried out at various points in the past six months by inspectors at Bournemouth Borough Council.

Although the results are made public, the council is refusing to publish the full reports which would highlight exactly why these establishments completely failed their regular hygiene inspection.

Of 1,833 establishments published, only four failed their all their checks in the last six months.

The fourth – Pasa Turkish restaurant, in Charminster Road – failed in October but have since applied for a rescore and received a four star rating.

The three businesses which failed are Cafe Treviso in Wimborne Road, Tara’s in the Triangle and the Westbourne Tandoori in Westbourne.

Louise Jones, team manager for public safety at Bournemouth Council, said: “Each of these food premises will continue to be monitored by our environmental health officers following the zero rating given to them on the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme last year.

“A zero rating is an extremely poor rating for a food business to receive.

“We have revisited each of the businesses on more than one occasion since the initial inspection taking enforcement action to ensure compliance with food legislation.”

After the failing establishments were visited they were put in the category of Urgent Improvement Needed.

Bournemouth Borough Councillor David Smith, pictured, whose cabinet portfolio includes licensing said: “It is right that these people should be named and shamed.

“The public have a right to know which restaurants are failing to maintain acceptable standards with their kitchens.”

However, Oguz Hann, manager of Tara’s, a Turkish restaurant in the Triangle, said that the busisness had worked hard to improve its standards and has completed the council’s requirements.

He said: “There was a problem with the tap in the ladies’ toilet because it was broken but now we have fixed it and the other recommendations.

“The problem is the inspector came when it was busy and I didn’t have time to speak to them properly about what we were doing.”

The council has confirmed that the restaurant has now complied with the notices and the required improvements have been implemented but they have to wait three months from their December visit before being graded again.

Westbourne Tandoori restaurant and take-away has also made improvements since they failed inspections on November 6 and has requested a regrading.

Cafe Treviso in Wimborne Road has completed the improvement work and is being sold.

Westbourne Tandoori has since received the highest possible food hygiene rating after a follow-up inspection.

Why Bournemouth Borough Council won’t release the inspection reports:

Louise Jones, Team manager for public safety at Bournemouth Council, said: “The information which matters to residents has been made public and that is the food hygiene ratings given to establishments following an inspection from an environmental health officer.

“We want to reassure people that immediate action will be taken to remedy any poor conditions.

“Environmental health officers can serve enforcement notices, prosecute and close food establishments where conditions are found to be poor.

“It is worth remembering that these inspections capture a specific point in time and in many cases the businesses are supported and given advice on how to improve their ratings and their current situation could be very different from the time of the original inspection.”

Can the Echo look into results for Poole and Christchurch? Hope this negative report gives these establishments a kick up the rear that they obviously need. Do they get fined for failing such an important inspection?

If not up to standard and a Zero result the place should be shut down , when the work required to bring it back up to a standard is completed then allow to reopen for business with future regular reviews until they prove ongoing regulations are being carried out and not slipping back to old standards.!! Like alcohol licences a notice should be displayed in view of the customer showing a zero result has been given to this establishment to allow customers to decide where they feel they want to eat.Once the standards are back to normal the notice of zero may be removed.

These ratings things are utterly pointless. Clean paperwork does not make a clean environment. I have personally witnessed one of the staff at a local chip shop press the front door shut using the blade of a kebab knife, and then proceed to use said knife to cut meat off the kebab without even wiping it first! They have a '5' rating.

Businesses should be required to display their food hygiene rating in their window as is the case in Wales.
.
Whilst businesses with a high rating (4 or 5) appear to display their rating those with low scores tend not to. I assume that if you go to a restaurant and they do not display their green food hygiene rating they probably have a low food hygiene score and are best avoided.
.
If in doubt you can look up the rating of any restaurant, café or food shop on the Food Standards Authority website at http://ratings.food.

A better story would be one about a certain branch of a local supermarket where the staff who work in the meat department wear raw chickens on their feet, walk around in them & then put them in the rotisserie for cooking before being sold on to an unsuspecting public.

I wonder how many stars that would score?

Not sure which branch or supermarket this is about, but I would add to this a certain supermarket where I went one evening and found two of those crate/trolley things fully stoacked with ice cream to go into freezer cabinets. There was nobody at all around them and when I poked the sides of a few tubs, the contents had completely melted. As this same branch of the same supermarket also sold yoghurt that had clearly been left to warm and then put back afterwards (and as a result made my sister extremely ill), I wouldn't doubt for a second that they went on to re-freeze and sell the same ice cream I found unattended.

If people aren't going to take the necessary care with consumables, they shouldn't be allowed to sell them.

Where we live the other half of our lives, in Toronto, every restaurant or food service establishment must display a card that gives the result and date of the last two inspections by the City's staff. It's based on a "traffic light" system so beloved of the British government; if a restaurant fails, it gets a red card and it is closed until it rectifies the faults, when it is reinspected. The "fail" is also shown on the card, so you can see before you set foot inside that, although it may have now passed another inspection, it failed the last one.

This publicity had had a significant effect in bringing up the food hygiene standards of restaurants, take-aways and delis in the city. Why can't Bournemouth operate a similar system? You fail - you're shut down. To quote some of my Echo correspondent colleagues - simples !

Because we are now swamped with the cut, cut, cut mantra where such stuff is seen as too costly.

Similarly the armed forces, children's education and the NHS are all too costly and need to be cut....

..... however when it's middle class homes built too close to rivers and flood plains then it is a case of money is no object

So s.od the public health, it's not headline news on the telly so it doesn't matter

Restaurants should be forced to display their score and not be able to apply for a re-score until another random surprise visit.
Hello all, to give another view on this, in fact the visit by En Health covers an entire range of points from paperwork, to décor, to appliances working properly as well as general food hygiene standards.
So yes it is entirely possible for somewhere that generally has good hygiene and is mostly up to standard to score badly for missing paperwork/paintwork that needs repainting or an electrical item that has failed.
The confidence in management aspect of the rating is a bit misleading, this means confidence in the the supervisor/manager that is on the premises at the time of the visit, it does not relate to the overall management of the business.
I know some people feel that places that score badly should be closed down, but remember that this is a score at a specific point in time and may not be a true reflection of the actual state of the business. Therefore I feel it would be very harsh to shut down a business based on one visit at one particular time.
If the business is reputable then they will immediately address any problems and do their best to ensure that they do not reoccur.
Although it is difficult and people will tend to assume the worst simply because they are not informed otherwise, I would ask any would be customer not to make a snap judgement and allow the business concerned time to put things right.

Yes I agree with this comment and think a bit of exaggeration has been used here!
A lot of people that are genuinely ill after eating food naturally look to the last place they ate. However it can take up to 10 days for certain types of food poisoning to show itself, so the restaurant that you had your lovely meal at the night before, may be unfairly getting the blame as being the cause of the illness!
It is very difficult to pin down the root of any outbreak, unless there are a lot of people all going down with illness that have eaten at the same place. Food poisoning can only be diagnosed by taking a stool sample, not by the guesswork of the person that has been taken ill. Once food poisoning has been officially been diagnosed, En Health will be informed and take the necessary steps to investigate further.

These places are probably no less hygienic than most of our kitchens. Of course, where you have restaurant staff that are paid subsistence wages, you'll always struggle to get any compliance. And it gets even more difficult whan many of the staff have little command of English. Folks, that's the price we pay for wanting cheap food.

If in doubt you can look up the rating of any restaurant, café or food shop on the Food Standards Authority website at http://ratings.food.

gov.uk/default/en-GB
You can get a Food hygiene app now. On IPhone search for 'Scores On Doors'. I never eat out without checking !

If an establishment has received less than 3, I blacklist it. If anyone has a substandard restaurant I wouldn't trust then again. Some of the stories you read and hear about restaurants are appalling. To be honest it really puts us off eating out. You need a licence to drive a car. In the same pay you should have to pass a test to run or work in a restaurant.

I even worry about 5* places. Loos are often disgusting (better than they used to be so), but the corners always look as though they need a good scrub.

And definitely the scores should be placed prominently in the window. Interestingly suspect establishments often have a myriad of press releases, certificates etc in their windows (usually getting grubby), but there is only one score I'm interested in ... Hygiene (and good reviews in Trip Advisor)
