Marked by Mice

Scott’s in Mayfair to reopen after closing due to a mice infestation; Montpeliano remains open in spite of receiving a Food Standards Agency rating of zero out of five

 

Today, Scott’s restaurant in Mount Street, Mayfair reopens after having been closed for six days for what they called “a spring clean and revamp”.

 

The restaurant, which is owned by bouffant haired Richard Caring, in fact, actually received a food hygiene rating of 1/5 – which indicates a “major improvement [is] necessary” – on 13th February and was especially criticized for standards of cleanliness and management of food safety. In particular, according to the Mail Online’s Shari Miller, the report highlighted: “During the inspection it was noted that there was a significant issue with mice activity throughout the premises”.

 

Of this development at a restaurant loved by many, a spokesman for Scott’s told the Mail Online:

 

“We are shocked that the council found a reason to reduce our rating despite 10 years with a spotless record”.

 

“The issues identified were dealt with immediately and we pushed for Westminster Council to return and regrade us before we closed for a long-term planned refurbishment of the restaurant”.

 

“We are more than happy for them to come back when we open as we are totally confident of retaining our five-star rating”.

 

“[This was a] wake-up call… And a reminder that for us to maintain our exacting standards, we must put in our own intense checks on top of outside agencies”.

 

Elsewhere, Knightsbridge’s Montpeliano retains a rating of zero on the Food Standards Agency website. Awarded the truly dreadful score on the 21st September 2016, this “garden style restaurant” opened in 1974 and describes itself as “the place to go for dressy, classic Italian cooking”.

  1. Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Close it down for good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disgusting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boycott these dumps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is wrong with you Brits?????????? You need to get on with Brexit and clean up your country!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is time to MAKE GREAT BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Teresa May will SORT OUT all the dodgy immigrants working in kitchens being lazy too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Deport them!!!!!!!!!!! Deport them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. All restaurants suffer such afflictions. Scott’s were just unlucky to get caught and their reaction has been very sensible. Plainly they hired a good damage limitation PR firm. Well done Richard Caring.

  3. I like Scott’s very much. I am very sorry to hear this. Plainly what goes on “down below” in restaurants leaves a lot to be desired.

  4. The food hygiene ratings are there for a reason.
    Zero rating is shocking!
    I was planning to eat there. Not anymore, I value my health.

    I partly agree with Rod for a change. Get educated people employed who understand hygiene and British quality standards.

    If the standards are high then, yes I am sorry about the Rats. I am talking about hygiene! I am shocked about the hygiene!

  5. I hate those mieces to pieces, the dirty little cheese thieves. Suffering sacatash. Get Sylvester in there to sort em out.

  6. Surprised at diners’ laissez faire attitude to poor hygie ne – potentially a killer especially in seafood restaurants. Its shocking a restaurant of Scotts standing is operating in this slovenly way
