Local takeaway Marlpool Diner in Willowfield Drive, Kidderminster recently achieved a gold standard as part of Worcestershire Regulatory Services’ Healthier Choices Food Award scheme.

The award was given in recognition of excellent food hygiene standards, supporting customers with healthier menu choices, reducing food wastage and the use of local food suppliers. 

First opened in 2006, Marlpool Diner has established a superb reputation for providing good quality food at affordable prices in Kidderminster and the surrounding areas.  The business strives to provide a variety of tasty food to appeal to adults and children alike using only top quality produce.

The secret of success according to Marlpool Diner is to use low calorie ingredients and healthier cooking oils in the majority of their dishes. Smaller portion sizes and a children’s menu are available too. 

The gold award for Marlpool follows a consistent Level 5 award in the Food Standards Agency rating scheme since 2009 for food hygiene. Additionally they were a West Midlands regional finalist in this year’s British Takeaway Awards which was held at The Savoy Hotel in London.

Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community, Health and Well-being said

“It is great to see more food businesses across the district adapting their menus to include healthier options for all. Not only does this bring healthy benefits, it also allows customers a wider choice of ways to enjoy their favorite food.”
