Far from Bog Standard – Winner of “Loo of the Year” is announced in Cambridge

One of Cambridge's best loved pubs J D Weatherspoons, The Regal has won a national award for the quality of its loos - "Loo of the Year"

The pub has been award a "Platinum" rating by inspectors who make thousands of unannounced visits to toilets around the land! The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of an 'away from home' toilet provision across the Country. All of the toilets are graded from bronze to platinum with unacceptable toilets not graded at all. A 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. Metro Rod Cambridge is very proud to have assisted in the continuous flow and maintenance of these facilities!

The Loo of the Year Awards 2018 managing director, Mike Bone, 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 richly deserves its platinum award – the highest individual award the judges can deliver."
