It means that of the Vale of White Horse's 66 takeaways with ratings, 44 have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

The council's environmental health team is in charge of inspecting and rating hospitality venues on a zero to five scale with zero being the lowest score and five the highest.

Each inspection grades hygienic food handling, management of food safety and cleanliness and condition of facilities and building.

The hygienic food handling was the contributing factor to the takeaway's low rating.
