A PUB has been praised for its 'exceptional' toilets by independent inspectors. The Old Swan in Market Place, Uttoxeter, has been awarded a platinum rating in the Loo of the Year Awards 2018. The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of 'away from home' toilet provision across the UK.
Loo of the Year Awards inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK in order to judge them.
The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer exceptional toilets and loos are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.
The Old Swan, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by Stuart Aitkin.
He said: “We are delighted with the award.
“Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in first-class condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”
The Loo of the Year Awards 2018 managing director, Mike Bone, said: “The toilets at The Old Swan have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.
“The pub richly deserves its platinum award – the highest individual award the judges can deliver.”
