We are delighted to inform customers that our food hygiene rating is an excellent 4.
However, PLEASE NOTE: The Hornbeam’s rating is incorrect on the Food Standard Association’s own website. See email transcript below from the Food Hygiene Agency to Jenny Parker, Cafe Manager at the Hornbeam cafe. From Anne Heeney the food standards inspector back in Feb:
‘Dear Kate & Jenny
I’m sorry that there has been a problem with your Food Hygiene Rating rescore failing to upload on the system.
I confirm that I visited the Hornbeam Café on 5th November 2015 and the rating was raised from 1 to 4 because hygiene conditions had improved. I am making enquiries as to why this happened and will ensure that the correct rating is displayed on the website as soon as possible.
I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Feel free to come and visit and chat to Jenny, Charlie, Kat or any of our cafe staff at any time about our kitchen practices – we know you’ll be impressed!
