A pub in Tunbridge Wells has been given a one star hygiene rating by council inspectors after mouldy food was found.

The Spread Eagle pub in Hawkenbury was given just one star - meaning "major improvement necessary" after an environmental health officer from Tunbridge Wells Borough Council visited last month.

The hygiene report stated that the pub failed to store foods at the correct temperatures, mouldy food was found behind chest freezers and the pub’s meat refrigerator - housed in an external shed - was dirty. Pest activity was also found in an external shed and cooked bacon was stored at 17°C when it must be maintained below 8°C.

A spokesperson for the pub said: "Following a revisit from the environmental health officer on March 16 to the Spread Eagle it was noted that the two outstanding legal requirements had now been addressed."
