Lincolnshire pub gets top Loo of the Year rating

The pub received a platinum rating

A Cleethorpes branch of the popular Wetherspoons pub chain has been given a platinum rating for its toilets in the Loo of the Year Awards 2018.

The Coliseum Picture Palace in High Street in Cleethorpes was given the highest award possible by inspectors as it won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets.

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.

All of the toilets are graded from bronze to platinum, with unacceptable toilets not graded at all. The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer “exceptional toilets”.

They are judged against numerous criteria, including decor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying, equipment and overall management.

Manager at The Coliseum Picture Palace Dwayne Brewster 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.”

Managing Director at The Loo of the Year Awards 2018, Mike Bone, added: “The toilets at The Coliseum Picture Palace 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.”
