A Kirkcaldy pub’s “facilities” have been awarded a gold star in the annual Loo of the Year awards.

The Robert Nairn was flushed with success after inspectors made a surprise visit to the Kirk Wynd bar to grade its facilities.

Michelle McCrabbe manages the Wetherspoon pub and she was more than relieved to receive the gold star: “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.”

The Loo of the Year awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of “away from home” toilet provision across the UK, with toilets graded from bronze to gold 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.

The Loo of the Year Awards 2015 managing director, Mike Bone, said: “The toilets at The Robert Nairn have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

“The pub richly deserves its gold award.”
