WE all love a good pub lunch every now and again and there's plenty of choice across Mid Cheshire.

But when choosing somewhere to eat or drink, its always worth knowing what your destination's food hygiene rating is. 

Here we have put together a list of the pubs, bars and clubs in and around Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich, Knutsford and Wilmslow which have been inspected since October 1, 2023, and given a food hygiene rating.

The ratings range from five (very good), four (good), three (generally satisfactory), two (some improvement necessary), one (major improvement necessary) and zero (urgent improvement required).

Findings from the inspections are updated on the FSA website whenever there is a new inspection conducted by the council.

All information was correct at the time of writing (March 28).
