A CARLISLE restaurant received a new three-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

The Viceroy at Unit 6 Linton House, Shaddongate was given the score after an assessment on Monday, February 20, the Food Standards Agency's (FSA) website shows.

This inspection found hygienic food handling, which relates to preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling, and storage, at the Viceroy was 'good'.

The same assessment found that the cleanliness and condition of facilities and building and management of food safety were both 'generally satisfactory'.

Here's what our readers said.

David Eyley said: "Shouldn't we expect all food outlets to have a 5 star rating these days? Anything less than that is surely sub-standard and could cause health issues. In this day and age, given the amount of inspections, clear regulations, and cleaning materials and equipment, there should be no excuse for anything less than 5 star."

Bob Harvey said: "It isn't always to do with the food or preparation, there are various other reasons for the star rating."

Alan Hunter added: "Food is great and I will be going back never had a bad meal yet."

John Reeves said: "That really is a poor effort from the Viceroy," while Ian Hebson said: "It's all about the conditions in which the food is prepared and not the taste."

Steven Welsh commented: "A million miles away from what it used to be."
