Commenting on the number of Enforcement Orders served in July, Dr Pamela Byrne, chief executive, said: “There are simply no excuses for putting consumers’ health at risk through sub-standard food hygiene practices. The summer months are busy months for food businesses and systems must be put in place to cope with the increase in customers.”

Discussing the reason for its closure, Fade Street Social said: “We had a plumbing issue that had to be fixed and we had no alternative but to close on the Friday night. The good news is this issue was fully resolved and we were open the following day.”
