Newbury pub's loos pick up gold star award

Hatchet manager 'delighted'

Toilets

NO jokes about being flushed with success please . . . but a Newbury pub has won acclaim for its toilets.

The Hatchet Inn in Market Place has been awarded a gold star rating by inspectors in the Loo of the Year Awards 2016.

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

Authorised inspectors make unannounced visits to hundreds of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.

All of the toilets are graded from bronze to gold 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 Hatchet Inn, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by Paul Read, who said: “I’m 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.”
