The Prense Well, the new Wetherspoon pub on The Mount which opened in late June, has gained the top rating for its levels of hygiene in Wirral council's Scores on the Doors programme.
The pub was awarded a five-star rating by the council's inspectors.
Scores on the Doors aims to highlight hygiene standards in pubs, restaurants, take-aways and clubs across the borough.
Inspectors judge outlets on how hygienic and well managed the food preparation at the premises is, and each business is benchmarked against the same criteria.
Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.
- handling of food
- how food is stored
- how food is prepared
- cleanliness of facilities
- how food safety is managed
The Prense Well's manager, Caroline Campbell, said: "We are delighted that we have gained the top rating and I'm sure our customers will welcome the news too.
"Standards of hygiene at the pub are of paramount importance.
"All of the staff work hard to ensure that the pub offers its customers the highest levels of hygiene at all time and we are delighted that our efforts have been recognised with the five-star rating."
