A Monmouthshire drinking establishment has been handed a new four-out-of-five food hygiene rating.

The Carpenters Arms, a pub, bar or nightclub at Coed Y Paen, Pontypool was given the score after assessment on November 30, the Food Standards Agency's website shows.

It means that of Monmouthshire's 125 pubs, bars and nightclubs with ratings, 79 (63%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.
