Wetherspoons in Cambridge has won a prize for the ‘quality and standards’ of its toilets. The toilets at The Regal on St Andrew’s Street have been awarded a platinum rating in the Loo of the Year Awards 2023.
The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of toilet provisions across the UK. Inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK to judge them.
All of the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum, platinum plus, or diamond. ‘Unacceptable’ toilets are not graded.
There are 61 different entry categories. The toilets are judged against criteria including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand-washing and drying equipment, and overall management.
David Ormrod, manager of The Regal, said: “We are delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in excellent condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”
The Loo of the Year Awards 2023 managing director, Becky Wall, said: “The toilets at The Regal have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained. The pub deserves its platinum award.”
