Details of the inspection were released on Wednesday, with management of food safety receiving the lowest classification as it was graded "major improvement is necessary".

In this category, inspectors assess if there are systems or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat.

Staff are also expected to know about food safety and the hygiene officer must have confidence that standards will be maintained in the future.

The area of cleanliness and condition of facilities and the building, which cover hand washing facilities and pest control, was rated as "improvement is necessary".

Of the three areas, hygienic food handling that covers cooking and storage, received the takeaway’s highest grade of "generally satisfactory".

A spokesperson from Eat-Well Diner said: “Many procedures have been put in place for the better of our store and customers.

“Thank you to all of our customers. We will ensure the utmost safety and quality for all.”
