The Archibald Simpson, in Aberdeen, has added to its long list of achievements – with an award for its food hygiene.
The outlet is one of only two pubs in the city centre (only the 23rd food outlet in 1,900 eating establishments in Aberdeen) to receive the ‘Eat Safe Award’.
Each of the councils in Scotland operates a programme of inspections, carried out by the Environmental Health Services, to ensure that the required hygiene standards are being met in restaurants, pubs and other food outlets.
During these inspections, the premises are assessed by the inspecting officer for the ‘Eat Safe Award’. Councils then present the award – and the scheme is run in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency in Scotland.
