A Huntingdon pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards 2019.
Sandford House in George Street has been awarded a diamond rating by inspectors - the highest award possible.
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 silver, gold, platinum or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.
