The ratings system gives businesses a rating from five to zero which is displayed at premises and online so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A five-star rating means hygiene standards are very good, while zero means urgent improvement is required.

Venues are marked on a number of factors, including the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.

Here are the latest ratings awarded to venues across the Liverpool City Region by the Foods Standards Agency:
