A village pub told to clean up its act has received a five-star food hygiene rating.
Inspectors revisited the Halfway House in Canterbury Road, Challock, at the end of July to check if improvements had been made.
The pub was handed a one-star rating by Ashford Borough Council (ABC) earlier this year after inspectors discovered staff were not trained in food hygiene and found more attention to cleaning the floor was needed.
Inspectors now say the conditions have much improved since the previous visit.
Landlord Syjit Shrestha said: “I am very happy that we have managed to get our five stars back - we couldn’t show proof of paperwork during the last inspection due to management changes which marked us down.
“We have put all the extra checks in place and have made structural improvements and if customers would like to take a look at my kitchen they are more than welcome to do so.”
