Local residents have also been voting for their favourite accredited venue to be named Town Centre Independent Venue, Suburban Independent Venue, Town Centre Chain Venue , Suburban Chain Venue, Village Venue and Late Night Venue.
To be awarded a ‘Best Bar None’ accreditation premises are visited by trained assessors who not only look at core standards but also note where premises have gone the extra mile to ensure customer safety and comfort such as handbag hooks under tables, CCTV camera, looking at ways to stop drug and alcohol misuse in premises, consulting neighbours over events and ensuring noise is kept to a tolerable level.
Nationally where schemes like this are already established, there has been a dramatic reduction in anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related violence, enhancing customer experience and creating a safe environment.
