Award for loos
TWO pubs have shown their toilets are more than bog standard after winning acclaim in the Loo of the Year Awards 2016.
Wetherspoons pubs The Society Rooms in Park Green, Macclesfield and The Kingfisher pub on London Road South, Poynton have been awarded a platinum star rating by inspectors – the highest award possible.
The awards are aimed at improving standards of toilets across the UK.
Inspectors make unannounced visits to hundreds of toilets to judge them on criteria including decor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.
The toilets are graded from bronze to gold with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.
The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer exceptional toilets.
The Society Rooms is managed by Lauren Eames, who said: “I am delighted with the award.
“Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in firstclass condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”
The Kingfisher is managed by James Doyle.
