Best Bar None is an accreditation scheme supported by the Home Office and the drinks industry, aimed at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises. The scheme is now in its sixth consecutive year.

Accredited premises ensure a safe and enjoyable place for a night out, which is vital to the economic growth and sustainability of the region.
