A Huntingdon pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards.
Sandford House, in George Street, has been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors – the highest award possible.
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’.
