Catering team members smile and hold their 5 star food hygiene rating award

Hampton Grange and Gwen Walford Nursing Homes in Hereford announce their continued possession of a 5-star food hygiene rating from the Food Standard’s Agency. This achievement comes after a rigorous unannounced inspection conducted by the Herefordshire Environmental Health Department on 20th June.

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is a legally mandated initiative designed to ensure that businesses involved in the supply, sale, or consumption of food adhere to food hygiene laws. During the inspection, a Food Safety Officer thoroughly examined the handling, storage, and preparation of food within the nursing home, as well as the overall cleanliness and safety of its facilities. To attain the highest rating of 5 stars, businesses must demonstrate compliance with all elements of the scheme.
Louise Craddock, the Home Manager of Hampton Grange and Gwen Walford, expressed her delight, stating:
“We are thrilled with the dedication and hard work of our Head Chef, Florin Serban, and his team. It is testament to their unwavering commitment to creating enticing dining for our residents.” 
Operated by Rotherwood Healthcare, Hampton Grange provides specialist Nursing and Dementia Care, while neighbouring Gwen Walford, offers Nursing and Residential Care. For more information, please visit
