A Falmouth pub has been recognised for raising the standards of its loos to such a height that you could eat your pub lunch off them*.

Well maybe not that far, but The Packet Station on The Moor has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards 2023.

The popular Falmouth pub has been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors from the Loo of the Year Awards .

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, platinum plus or diamond 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 Packet Station, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by Aaron Niles.

Aaron said: "We are delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in excellent condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors."

The Loo of the Year Awards 2023 managing director, Becky Wall, said: "The toilets at The Packet Station have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

"The pub deserves its platinum award."
