Pubs are flushed with success over awards

Hedgeford Lodge in Anglesey Street, Hednesford, and The Plaza in Horsefair have been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors and The Linford Arms in High Green, Cannock has won a gold rating.

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

Loo of the Year Awards inspectors make unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.

All of the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

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

Hedgeford Lodge manager, Katherine Prince, 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 2019 managing director, Mike Bone, said: "The toilets at the two pubs have been designed and fitted out to a very high standards and are both clean and well maintained.

"The pubs richly deserve their awards."
