‘Mice droppings’ found by food hygiene inspectors at Sasa Sushi and The Old Red Lion in St John Street – Islington Gazette

Mice droppings, cockroaches and concerns over the storage and preparation of raw fish have been highlighted by health inspectors in relation to two popular St John Street eateries.

Freedom of Information (FOI) requests show why Sasa Sushi plummeted from a five star food hygiene rating to a zero following an inspection on January 30. They also reveal why the oldest pub in Islington, The Old Red Lion (ORL), was given the second lowest rating possible (1/5) following an inspection the same day.

In reference to ORL, an inspector stated: “There were numerous contraventions of the legislation – this is disappointing. […] Mice droppings were seen on the shelves in the ground floor bar area and in the basement. Your last pest control report, dated (January 16) reported a mice infestation and cockroach problem. Recommendation from this report was deep cleaning – this clearly has not been actioned.”
