A pub given a one out of five food hygiene score and told to make major improvements has regained the top rating after addressing concerns.
The Horseshoes at Billingford has been awarded five stars following a new inspection by South Norfolk Council on September 26.
The pub, on the A143 between Scole and Harleston, overlooking the iconic Billingford windmill, had been downgraded to one star after being told that its system for the management of food safety was inadequate.
The main failings that inspectors found during an unannounced visit in June had related to inadequate hygiene training for food handlers and procedures to identify hazards and risks.
Their report said hygienic handling of food, including preparation, cooking, re-heating, and storage, had been "generally satisfactory".

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme rates food businesses on a scale ranging from zero which means urgent improvement necessary to a top rating of five which is very good.
