Food hygiene ratings help people choose where to eat out or buy food by telling them how seriously the company takes its food hygiene standards.
While the majority of restaurants, canteens and eateries in Dacorum have ratings of three or more, 13 restaurants have ratings of one or less.
Establishments like takeaways, pubs and bars are categorized into three areas when inspected.
They are assessed on hygienic food handling (how food is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored), cleanliness and condition of facilities and construction and food safety management which examines the systems in place to ensure the food is safe to eat and whether the food safety manager is confident that the standards will be maintained in the future.
Here are all the businesses in Dacorum that currently have a Food Standards Agency rating of 0 or 1.
