5 Stars For East End Boozer Loos

Congratulations also to Regents Park loos, thanks to Marco di Pisa
The East London Advertiser brings us pun filled news that the Goodman's Fields pub in Aldgate has received the highest rating in the Loo of the Year Awards' good loo guide. Wetherspoon pubs aren't normally renowned for much more than cheap booze, peculiarly joyless 'real ale festivals' and 2 for a fiver lunch deals so good on the Goodman's Fields for standing out with its high standards of hygiene and plentiful supplies of toilet paper.

The 2009 awards ceremony takes place in December after which we hope the Loo website will be updated with this year's best places to pee. However, checking out the 5 star rating awards 2008, we note that, bar 3 independent pubs, only Wetherspoon pubs attained this level of goodness much as MacDonalds monopolises the '5 star' fast food category, so we're left wondering about exactly who's nominating and who's inspecting these places. Perhaps you'd like to nominate a lavvy for the 2010 awards to redress this imbalance? If there was a bog brush award for the most heinous public lavatory we'd certainly have a few horror stories to share - make our day by sharing yours in the comments: filth, stench, floods and all.

We'd also love to hear from anyone in possession of a copy of the 1968 Good Loo Guide: Where to Go in London by Jonathan Routh
