Calcutta Brasserie describes itself as “Stony Stratford's multi-award winning Indian restaurant”. But the hygiene rating score of 1 means ‘major improvement is necessary’.

The scheme is law in Wales and Northern Ireland but display of the rating sticker is voluntary in England.

It means that of Milton Keynes's 457 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 334 (73%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

Rating system:

5 – hygiene standards are very good

4 – hygiene standards are good

3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory

2 – some improvement is necessary

1 – major improvement is necessary

0 – urgent improvement is required
