A BEXLEYHEATH pub was bowled over after being recognised by the Loo of the Year Awards 2012.
The Furze Wren, in Broadway, has been awarded a gold star rating by inspectors for its toilets.
The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision across the UK.
Toilets are judged against numerous criteria, including decor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing, drying equipment and overall management.
All of the toilets are graded from bronze to gold with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.
The Furze Wren manager Louie Blythe said: "I am delighted with the award.
"Staff at the pub work hard to 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 2012 managing director, Mike Bone, said: "The toilets at The Furze Wren 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."
