Best Bar None is a national scheme and this is recognisable by the following logo:
Best Bar None is aimed at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol-licensed premises with the ultimate intention of offering and maintaining a safer, more welcoming, attractive and lively drinking and dining experience for locals and visitors to the East Riding of Yorkshire area.
Best Bar None aims to reward licensees who provide good management, a safe and enjoyable environment for customers, discourage binge drinking and prevent alcohol-related crime.
It encourages licensees to act responsibly and take pride in their premises and surroundings and, in doing so, put something back into our Towns and their local communities.
The rewards for licensees include:
- the prestige of being part of the awards scheme;
- increased business within the area;
- lower insurance premiums resulting from the fact that they are running safer establishments;
- possible reduction in fees, if a late night levy was to be introduced.
The Best Bar None Scheme was piloted in the East Riding of Yorkshire Area in 2009, and we are pleased to announce the re-launch of Best Bar None for 2012.
In 2012, there will be 5 categories of entry to promote a more diverse night time economy culture:
- Best Bar (Town);
- Best Pub (Town);
- Best Community Premises (Rural);
- Best Food Led premises;
- Best Friendly Family premises.
Premises that choose to enter the Best Bar None Awards Scheme and meet the minimum criteria will be assessed by trained assessors and hopefully will become accredited with a pass, merit or distinctions. The top premises will be put forward to an independent judging panel.
The top five premises in each category will then be forwarded to a judging panel that will award the ultimate prize of Best Bar None 2012.
East Riding of Yorkshire Best Bar None Scheme is run by The Licensing Authority in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, BBPA, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and Humberside Police.
