Popular Lincoln restaurant gets one star hygiene rating

One of the worst rankings in the city for hygiene.

A Lincoln restaurant has been slapped by food hygiene inspectors with one the lowest ratings in the city.

House of Tiago on Silver Street received a one star food hygiene rating out of a possible five by the City of Lincoln Council after an inspection on December 15, 2017.

The Brazilian all-you-can-eat restaurant officially opened its doors in October 2016 and serves a range of meats including steak, Brazilian sausage, chicken and duck hearts.

The rating for the business includes:

  • Hygienic food handling – Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage – Improvement necessary
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building – Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene – Major improvement necessary
  • Management of food safety – System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future – Generally satisfactory

According to the Scores on the Doors website, the restaurant was also rated:

  • Food Hygiene and Safety – Poor
  • Structural Compliance – Bad
  • Confidence in Management – Some

Only seven other restaurants in the city have been given a one star rating, with none being given a lower score.
