Laura Cumberland, who runs the Frog & Orange at Shatterling with husband Trevor, daughter Louise and Louise’s partner Wayne, believes it is an twenty minutes a day that has given the pub a top rating of five under new health and hygiene rules. That top score under the government-backed Food Hygiene Rating Scheme has in turn boosted trade at the pub.

I reckon it takes an extra 20 minutes a day to stay on top of everything and ensure we operate as a top-scoring food premises,” said Laura, adding: “That’s not very much when you think about the extra trade it brings in.”
The scores range from zero, which means urgent improvement is required, through to five, which shows the premises display very good levels of hygiene. The ratings are also available on www.food.gov.uk/ratings
