Yesterday, Wednesday 17th January 2018, was a great day for the Cafe at Zinc.

Following a totally unannounced visit from a food safety officer from the Food Standards Agency yesterday to inspect our kitchen and cafe area and to review our hygiene rating, we are delighted to announce that the result was a 5 STAR rating. Meaning customers can have complete confidence in the cleanliness and safety within our kitchen and cafe.

According to the FSA the top rating of ‘5’ means that the business was found to have ‘very good’ hygiene standards.


Sonia Cakebread, Zinc Director, congratulated the kitchen staff on their hard work saying “this is a great achievement for Zinc and clearly demonstrates the hard work that Sarah, Toni and Natalie have put into making the kitchen a great success. A massive well done to the catering team and everyone who supports them”.

Our new rating is proudly displayed on the front door – come on down and check it out and why not treat yourself to a spot of something delicious to eat while you’re here!

The Cafe is open from 9am to 3pm Monday – Saturday serving hot and cold drinks and a delicious range of lunches and snacks.
