Pubs recognised for decent loos


Two JD Wetherspoon pubs have won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets in the Loo of the Year Awards 2015.

The Captain Noel Newton in High Street, Oakham, and The Stamford Post in Sheep Market, Stamford, have both been awarded a platinum star rating by inspectors - the highest award possible.

The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of toilet provision across the UK.

Authorised inspectors make unannounced visits to hundreds of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer “exceptional toilets.”

The toilets are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

The Captain Noel Newton, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by Gail and Richard Jones. Gail said: “Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in first-class condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised.”
