Or maybe not!

Anybody eat at any of these places - if so what do you rate them?

REVEALED: The 12 food outlets in Bolton given a ZERO hygiene rating by Food Standards Agency.

TWELVE food outlets in Bolton currently have a zero rating for food hygiene — meaning urgent improvement is necessary.

There are also 89 outlets that have been slapped with the second lowest rating, a level one for food hygiene — with the Food Standards Agency stating that ‘major improvement’ is required.

But there is some good news for Bolton food fans, with 865 of Bolton’s 2,249 food outlets achieving the top rating of five for food hygiene after inspectors visited their businesses – 59 more than in summer 2015.

The figures come from the ‘Scores on the Doors’ website, which was introduced nationally in 2011 and displays the results of inspections by council environmental health officials.

There are a number of outlets across the borough that are either exempt from inspection or are currently awaiting inspection — so the results could be set to change soon.

In Bolton, it is the BL1 and BL3 post codes that have the biggest number of zero-rated food businesses — with four falling within each areas.

The lists below is based on inspections that appear on the national Scores on the Doors website following council inspections.

Visits from the authority occur at different times and some businesses may be waiting on upcoming inspections.

Some may have changed management or closed in the interim.
We will update our list in the coming months.

Jeez, Sluffy. I never considered Bolton and district to be denizens of haute cusine but that list scares the bejesus out of me. Seems a lot of zero and one gradings. Have to look at UK wide to see if it's a bigger problem. Environmental health seem to have lost the will to act.

I read that the new Gourmet burger place in the vaults got a 1 because they allowed burgers to be cooked rare and they didn't like that. I personally wouldn't have a rare burger but if the customer requests it then that's up to them isn't it? They've stopped doing it now so i presume the rating would go up now

There's also a few in my old stomping ground of Chorley Old Road which isn't a surprise

Me too! My fave eaterie in Bolton was Angelo's Italian restaurant but since he got nicked for interfering with his waitresses I have given it the swerve.

There used to be a Chinese over the Armadale centre that got done for alsation in the freezer.
In the early seventies, when I was but a lad, Tams on Chorley Old Road got done for cock roaches in the shop.
Not long after when visiting on a Saturday night in an underage inebriated state, one of my mates asked the Chinese guy in the shop to put some batter on a moth that was loitering on the wall! He wasn't too amused but we were.

I remember this but some years later was told it was an urban myth.  I'd heard that someone in the know found a bone in the chicken soup and recognised it as not being chicken. Seemed real at the time though.

Sort of.

I remember 'pop' lorries.  



I think you could even buy bottles from them - although we didn't.

I remember Cambrian Soft Drinks mostly because they took over the Magee Marshall brewery just off Derby Street.



My dad loved his pint of Magee's and said it was never the same since they merged with Marshall's - before my time that must have been.

According to my dad Magee's was Bolton's only brewery and it was lost because of the keg beer revolution (Watney's red barrel being one advert I can remember about that time) and Greenhall Whittley (shite) and Tetley (just about acceptable) both being brewed at massive brewery's in Warrington - became the norm - until the more recent micro-breweries started to pop up.

I don't feel I've answered your question though.

Sorry.

No problem Sluffy. I seem to remember Cambrian sponsored us in a small way in the 70's,but I've been struggling to remember drinking any of the stuff.
Corona certainly strike a chord. They used to come round every Saturday,until they were usurped by a firm called Alpine,who sold cheaper pop,and had a wider range of flavours.
Alpine ginger beer in a big stone jug was a particular luxury for us kids.
Magee's is another memory jogger.

I do remember Greenall Whitley beer, they were still around (just)when i started going to pubs, it was shite apart from one called Festival i think?

That used to be the bus station before Moor Lane was developed.

It was roughly where the Octagon and the car park is now.

I remember catching the 82 bus from there many times to go up Daubhill to visit my aunt who lived up there.

The building at the back with the Magee sign had something to do with the civil service and my grandma worked there.

Long time ago now though.

As I remember it the Crofters wasn't on the actual junction (i.e. top of St George's) but off to the right as you leave town somewhere between Vernon St and what is now Topp Way.

I think you're right there Norpig. A lot of people around there also used to call the Howcroft the crofters.

I can't understand why they might as the Crofters (at the junction of Chorley New and Old Roads) and the Howcroft - the one with the bowling green and beer festivals (at the rear of Vernon Street / Top Way) were two separate pubs in quite close walking distance of each other?

The Royal at the bottom of Vernon Street was/is sort of situated between the two of them.

The Crofters and The Howcroft were always two very distinct pubs as I recall my time drinking down there.

But it did tend to get confusing when someone suggested we meet in "The Crofters" before the match and half went to the one on Chorley Old / New Rd and the other half went to the one on Halliwell Rd.

Especially as it was before the advent of mobile phones.....

I think you're all right. Whenever I was in that area I was off my tits and I definitely strolled into both pubs frequently without caring about the name. Definitely the Howcroft I was thinking of which was later and lamer.

When  I was living in that area in my late teens we used to go in The Cotton Tree Down Prince Street, then to The Rock which was just off School Hill which was later called The Globe I think, then onto the Royal on Vernon Street, into The Howcroft and then into the one on Chorley Street which I can't for the life of me remember the name of. It would then be onto the Vic and the Kings Arms up Chorley Old Road.

Farmers Arms.

I've supped in all of those and one or two that you may have forgotten about or had shut before your time.

Opposite the Rock (as I knew it - it later changed its name to the New Globe, when the original one on Higher Bridge Street shut) was the 'Old Vets' club, which used to have 'turns' on at the weekends.

On Vernon Street just higher up than the Royal was the Poplar (my brothers 'regular' many years back).

Walking up Chorley Old Road on the opposite side to the Crofters was/is The Nelson, then cross over the road again to the Sally up Steps (Stanley Arms).

The Kings Arms was my parents 'regular' as they had been good friends of the landlord and wife Peter and Flo Pollet and 'moved' with them to the Hope and Anchor when they took over there.

Long time ago now though.
