Use this form if you wish to appeal a food hygiene rating.

You have 21 days from the date you received your notification letter to appeal. If you appeal after the deadline, the Food Safety Team won't be able to process your appeal.

You'll need to provide reasons for why you don't agree with the rating, in each of these areas of food hygiene:

  • how you comply with food hygiene and safety procedures
  • how you comply with structural requirements
  • why your management and control procedures are reliable.

Press 'Begin this form' when you're ready to proceed.
