A kebab shop which has been told to make urgent improvements to its hygiene levels is appealing against a ‘poor’ rating.

Aylesbury Kebab and Burger House, close to Sainsbury’s in Buckingham Street, was given a one out of five hygiene rating by Aylesbury Vale District Council.

The rating, which means ‘major improvement necessary’, was given because inspectors found there had been a ‘deterioration in standards in food safety management practices at the business since the last inspection’.

But its manager, who chose not to be named, is appealing against the decision because he thinks the inspector had a ‘bad day’.

A spokesman for the council said: “We are currently working with Aylesbury Kebab and Burger House to ensure that they meet legal requirements.”

The kebab shop was found to have ‘general failure to satisfy statutory hygiene regulations’ – which covers food handling and temperatures.

There was ‘little’ confidence in the management which means the kebab shop had ‘varying record of compliance, poor appreciation of hazards and control measures and no food safety management system in place’.
