A Cleckheaton pub has won a top industry award - for the standard of its toilets!

The Obediah Brooke on Bradford Road was given the highest possible rating for its facilities by a team of inspectors judging the Loo of the Year Awards.

The Wetherspoon's pub received a platinum rating after the unannounced visit to its lavatories and has been told that criteria including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management all scored as 'exceptional'.

“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,” said the pub's manager Philip Smith.

The Loo of the Year Awards 2015 managing director, Mike Bone, added:

“The toilets at the Obediah Brooke 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 – the highest individual award the judges can deliver.”
