TWO Wetherspoon pubs in Herefordshire have won acclaim for the quality and standards of their toilets.

The Kings Fee in Commercial Road, Hereford and The Duke’s Head in Corn Square, Leominster, have each been awarded a platinum rating in the Loo of the Year Awards 2021.

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

And the awards' managing director said the pubs' toilets were of a high standard, clean and well maintained.

Loo of the Year Awards inspectors made 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.

The Duke's Head manager Jonathan Money 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 2021 managing director Becky Wall said: "The toilets at the two pubs have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

"The pubs deserve their platinum awards."
