Toilet inspectors have judged the loo at the Powder Monkey, in The Parade, Exmouth, five star. The pub was told it ‘richly deserved’ its platinum award - the highest accolade awarded by Loo of the Year Awards 2017 judges.

An Exmouth pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets ˗ in the Loo of the Year Awards 2017.

The Powder Monkey, in The Parade, was awarded a platinum star rating by inspectors.

Rachel Durley, Powder Monkey manager, said: “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 2017 managing director, Mike Bone, said: “The toilets at The Powder Monkey 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.”

The Loo of the Year Award inspectors make thousands of unannounced visits to judge scores of toilets across the UK on décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

All loos are graded from bronze to platinum with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer “exceptional toilets.”
