A public house has received a ‘zero star’ food hygiene rating after a ‘brief but unacceptable lapse’.
The Star, in Congresbury, was visited by a food standards agency inspector on October 18.
The inspector deemed improvement was necessary in the category of 'hygienic food handling', and major improvement required in 'cleanliness and management of food safety'.
The public house, in Rhodyate Hill, is owned by Greene King.
A spokesperson for Greene King said: "We pride ourselves on our normally high standards and apologise to customers for this brief but unacceptable lapse. We took immediate action in October to remedy the issues identified and have worked closely with North Somerset Council since to ensure they are happy with our improvements.
