Chiswick Smokehouse 'Grilled' By Food Hygiene Inspector
Barbecue and grill eatery needs 'major improvement'
Chiswick Smokehouse in Sutton Lane North has had a roasting from a Food Inspector who found the restaurant needed 'major improvement' in its food hygiene standards.
The inspection carried out by Hounslow Council on behalf of the Food Standards Agency on September 26th 2016, gave a rating of 1, to the barbecue and grill gastropub.
A Rating of 1 means 'Major Improvement Necessary'.
The report said that Food Hygiene and Safety was 'Poor'; Structural Compliance was 'Good', and Confidence in Management was rated as 'Little'. The full reports of the inspections are not made publicly available so it is not known what caused the inspector to give the overall rating.
We have asked for a comment from Smokehouse management.
Critic Fay Maeschler has favourably reviewed the food, and tv chef Rick Stein has eaten there.
The Chiswick Smokehouse is currently shortlisted for Time Out Love London Awards, which are voted on by locals and customers.
Smokehouse describes itself as having the warm atmosphere of a village pub, complete with three open fires and a stunning landscaped garden .
After the Noble Inns group purchased the premises they refurbished and brought in specialist equipment for for the grilling and barbecuing.
