Chris Burt, one of the partners of Simply Classic, said: “We’re delighted to have achieved the great accolade of having all our bistros and the catering and vending service receive top marks achievable in the food hygiene rating scheme.

“Our dedicated catering staff and a team of chefs work incredibly hard to deliver the best possible service to our customers and this hygiene award reflects that emphasis on our commitment.”

Those awarded include Simply Classic at Shuttleworth Mead, Padiham; Simply Classic Bistro and Bar at Burnley Mechanics; Simply Classic Bistro and Bar at the new Prairie Sports Village in Windermere Avenue and Classic Cuisine at Lancashire Digital Technology Centre.

The outside catering service Classic Cuisine also received the rating of five stars.

Founded by Robert and Anne Bradshaw, Simply Classic started its journey with Classic Cuisine catering in the 1990s.

Since then the company has grown significantly, particularly in the last couple of years after teaming up with Burnley Leisure and opening bistros at the Burnley Mechanics and the Prairie.
