Abso-loo-tely five-star toilets in Canary Wharf
Toilets at a Docklands pub are in the running for a national award after receiving a five-star rating from inspectors.
Drinkers often head to use the “facilities” with trepidation, but the Ledger Building in Hertsmere Road has broken the mould.
After receiving its rating, the Wetherspoon’s pub next to West India Quay will now be put forward for the Loo of the Year awards in Kenilworth in December.
There it could be awarded England’s best pub toilet.
Inspectors made unannounced visits to 1,500 toilets across the UK to assess them on factors including decor, cleanliness and accessibility.
