A Galashiels pub has proved its toilets are anything but bog standard by winning an accolade at the 2016 Loo of the Year Awards.

Hunters Hall, part of the JD Wetherspoon chain, has been awarded a platinum star rating by inspectors, the highest grade possible.

Susan English, manager of the High Street pub, said: “I am 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.”

Loo of the Year Awards managing director Mike Bone added: “The toilets at Hunters Hall 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.”
