New inspection results for a number of restaurants, pubs, bars, nightclubs and food outlets in south east London have been listed on the Food Standards Agency’s website.

We’ve compiled a list of all the places with the lowest food hygiene ratings in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lewisham and Southwark – only including those rated since 2020.

If you’re in the mood for a bite to eat in south east London, you might want to check this list to see where you should avoid.

Inspectors check how hygienically the food is handled, the condition of the building and how the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe.

What do the numbers mean?

Zero – Urgent improvement necessary.

One – Major improvements necessary.

Two – Improvements necessary.

Three – Generally satisfactory.

Four – Good on assessment.

Five – Seen as very good.

All of the following establishments received a rating of 0 which the agency says means urgent improvement is necessary.

However, ratings only apply to the time of the last inspection so it may not represent current conditions at the business.
