Reading Domino’s Pizza food hygiene ratings for every pizza delivery store

Fancy a slice of pizza tonight? Who can blame you – the delicious Italian dish is a takeaway favourite all around the world.

The winning combination of dough, cheese and tomato is one you can’t fail to enjoy. Luckily, there are plenty of excellent places to order a pizza in Reading.

A popular choice for cosy night in or to take the edge off a rough day, there are a handful of chains in the town all claiming to be the top dog for pizza. One of the biggest of course is Domino’s, which has seven stores in Reading.

Trying to pick one to order from often comes down to where you live. But some in Reading might find they fall in the catchment area for more than one store.

From there, how do you decide? Customers might have a preference based on past experience, but another key factor is food hygiene ratings.

The Food Standards Agency judges every food outlet in the country on key criteria. Ratings are often displayed on stickers placed in the windows of establishments, but there is no obligation to do so.

Food safety inspectors carry out their investigations on behalf of local authorities, meaning Reading Borough Council holds all the data on eateries in the town. Each cafe, bar, pub, restaurant or otherwise is judged on the following criteria:

  • Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene
  • 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

The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to zero, which is usually displayed at their premises and online so you can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food. A five-star score means hygiene standards are ‘very good’ with a zero meaning ‘urgent improvement is necessary’.

Fortunately for pizza lovers, every single Domino’s in Reading has a five-star hygiene rating. Some haven’t been inspected in a while, but Berkshire Live has run down a list of each store’s rating and their last inspection date below.
