Five stars for station drinking spot

Have your say

A popular Leeds pub has been given a top score by hygiene inspectors.

The Wetherspoons branch in the city’s railway station was handed a five-star rating by a council inspection team as part of the Scores on the Doors scheme, which aims to raise standards.

Inspectors judge outlets on how hygienic and well-managed the food preparation at the premises is and each business is benchmarked against the same criteria of hygiene, structural and confidence in management.

Pub manager John Tondeur, said:

“I am delighted that we have gained the top rating and I’m sure our customers will welcome the news too. Standards of hygiene at the pub are of paramount importance.

“All of the staff work hard to ensure that the pub offers its customers the highest levels of hygiene at all time and we are delighted that our efforts have been recognised with the five-star rating.”

The station Wetherspoons recently announced plans for a new roof terrace.
