The Black Rose Tavern in Edinburgh (staff pictured) scooped overall national winner in Scotland at the Best Bar None awards 2019, which took place on Thursday 28th March at the DoubleTree Dunblane Hydro Hotel in Dunblane.

It also walked away with Best Independent Pub, the Innovation in Social Responsibility accolade, and was awarded a Platinum Award for consistent commitment to best practice within the licensed trade.

Other winners included The Garage and The Blythswood Hotel  in Glasgow, and The Glen Mavis Tavern, Bathgate.

The national scheme supports venues’ delivery of safe and inclusive social spaces, while rewarding social responsibility and duty of care.

A number of other outstanding venues from across Scotland were recognised as being among the premium licensed establishments in the country.

The venues were considered not only for their commitment and diligence in relation to their licensing commitments as key drivers for their businesses, but more importantly their customers and staff.

There are eleven categories within the award scheme: Pub, Independent Pub, Bar, Independent Bar, Hotel, Night Club, SEV, Heart of the Community, Newcomer, Innovation in Social Responsibility and National Champion.
