A pub manager has said he feels "fine" about winning a gold award for the standard of its toilets.

The Ice Wharf in Jamestown Road, received the prize in the Wetherspoon chain's Loo of the Year Awards 2023.

In previous years the Camden Lock pub has received a platinum rating - one better.

Inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK, rating them silver, gold, platinum, platinum plus or diamond - with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

Ice Wharf manager Aurimas, who declined to give his surname, said he felt "fine" about winning.

He added: "We win every year, it's great. We've had platinum before, now it's gold."

Asked if standards had slipped, he said: "Nothing's slipped, sometimes it's platinum, sometimes its gold, it's just an award."

The toilets are judged against criteria including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

The Loo of the Year Awards managing director, Becky Wall, said: "The toilets at Camden Wharf have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

"The pub deserves its awards."
