A Carrickfergus High Street pub has received a platinum star rating in the Loo of the Year Awards 2017.

The Central Bar impressed inspectors who considered décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management when they made unannounced visits across the UK.

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

Michael Morgan, of the Central, 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.”

Mike Bone, managing director, Loo of the Year Awards, said: “The toilets at The Central Bar 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.”
