It follows visits by Boston Borough Council’s environmental health officers.
Karolina Rusin, owner of Seventh Heaven since it opened almost 10 years ago, said: “We have had a five rating ever since we opened, so it is pleasing to us all that we have retained that following the latest inspection.
“It’s really important for our customers to know we are doing everything right. Our outdoors dining area is busy during the summer months and it is more important as we move food from the controlled environment indoors to the outdoors area that our food hygiene standards are as good as they can be.”
The council’s environmental health officers rate premises in line with the Food Standard Agency’s Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
The scheme helps consumers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, takeaways and food shops.
