Reeds Arms Wetherspoon pub Burnham-On-Sea

A Burnham-On-Sea pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards 2019.

The Reeds Arms in Burnham’s Pier Street, which is run by JD Wetherspoon, has been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors.

The awards aim to highlight and improve standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision across the UK.

It comes aftter the Burnham-On-Sea pub received a £600,000 revamp earlier this year.

Loo of the Year Awards inspectors make 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.

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

Oliver Haskins, manager of The Reeds Arms, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We are 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.”

The Loo of the Year Awards 2019 managing director, Mike Bone, added: “The toilets at The Reeds Arms 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.”
