A New Barnet pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets.

The Railway Bell in East Barnet Road, New Barnet, received the platinum star rating by inspectors in the Loo of the Year Awards 2017.

The awards are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of toilet provision away from home across the UK.

In the awards the toilets are graded from bronze to platinum.

Pub manager Ryan Baker 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 Railway Bell 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."
