A MUSSELBURGH pub’s toilets have been declared platinum standard.

The David Macbeth Moir on Bridge Street has been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors – the highest award possible – in this year’s Loo of the Year Awards.

The accolades are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision. Inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets to judge them.

All of the toilets are graded from bronze to platinum, with unacceptable toilets not graded.

The toilets are judged against numerous criteria including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing, drying equipment and overall management.

The David Macbeth Moir, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by David Black, who said: “We are delighted.

“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.”

Mike Bone, Loo of the Year Awards 2018 managing director, added: “The toilets at The David Macbeth Moir 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.”
