A St Albans pub has been recognised at the Loo of the Year Awards 2017.

Waterend Barn, a Wetherspoons outlet off St Peter’s Street, was given a platinum star rating by inspectors.

Manager Stephen Baldwin 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 toilets are judged against numerous criteria including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, and hand washing equipment.

The awards are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, and highlight standards in ‘away from home’ toilet provision.

The Loo of the Year Awards 2017 managing director Mike Bone said: “The toilets at Waterend Barn have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.”
