Scarborough chippy prosecuted for hygiene offences



The co-owner of a Scarborough fish and chips restaurant has been fined over £3,500 after being found guilty of four food hygiene related offences.


William Bell, co-owner of Café 55 Limited, which was trading as Restaurant 55 at the time of prosecution, was linked to selling unsafe food, poor cleanliness and upkeep of the premises and poor food safety management.

Environmental health officials from Scarborough Borough Council visited the premises on numerous occasions and found filthy conditions including dirty sinks, food past its use by dates and equipment not up to standard. Despite being given several opportunities to comply with the relevant food hygiene regulations, officials were left with no choice but to prosecute for clear and repeated failures.

Jonathan Bramley, Scarborough Borough Council, Environment and Regulation Manager, comments: “Food businesses are responsible for ensuring that their premises are kept clean and maintained in good repair and condition to ensure that they produce food in a safe and hygienic manner and in a clean environment.

"As part of food safety management system it is expected that food business operators will be competent at stock control, understand the significance of use by dates and discard food that has passed the use by date. Consistent failings were found in all these areas.

"We hope this case sends out a clear message that we will not hesitate to take action against any food business which does not comply with food safety requirements.”

William pleaded guilty to the charges and was fined £3,796 to be paid by the end of January 2018.

Restaurant 55 was given a Food Hygiene Rating of 2 on its last inspection in March 2017 where officials ranked Food Hygiene and Safety as “Poor”, Structural Compliance “Fair” and Confidence in Management “Some”.
