Excellence in hygiene earns top marks
Shrewsbury Town's hospitality department has been awarded five-star status from the Enviromental Health for its hygiene standards.
The club received a surprise visit from Enviromental Health officers yesterday when they were given the highest possible rating of five out of five.
Paul Crowe, Shrewsbury Town's executive chef, said it was another glowing endorsement of the high standards the club's hospitality staff have developed an impressive reputation for.
"You get a surprise visit from the Enviromental Health periodically," said Paul. "They recently started a new scheme called scores on the doors which is a mark out of five for hygiene.
"They then publish their findings online and the idea is if you are planning to go out for a meal, you can check online and see the hygiene rating for that particular establishment.
"During the visit they checked out the kitchen in great depth, the hygiene structure and the management of the safety procedures in the kitchen for food hygiene.
"They also check the bars and areas of trading standards as well because that's started to come into their remit now.
"The result was excellent throughout and there were no comments for improvement anywhere.
"We've been told verbally it was five out of five and we'll now be sent the certificates and window stickers to display."
Shrewsbury Town's hospitality department has established an excellent reputation since the club moved into the Greenhous Meadow five years ago.
They serve thousands of satisfied customers throughout the year and have become a sought after venue for a host of various functions.
