Coronavirus: Best Bar None Scotland postpones 2020 launch


Best Bar None Scotland, a national accreditation and awards scheme which aims to raise safety standards and best practice amongst licensed venues, has postponed its 2020 launch from April until September due to the COVID-19 outbreak .

Best Bar None is now operational in more than 50 towns and cities across Scotland, and each year participating venues are visited by an independent assessor and judged on their efforts around the prevention of crime and disorder and securing public safety. Venues are then awarded either a Gold, Silver or Bronze accreditation.

Robert Hogg, Best Bar None Scotland’s National Coordinator, said, “The COVID-19 enforced shut down has hit everyone involved in the licensed trade particularly hard, but we will get through this. Our first priority right now must be everyone’s health, so I urge everyone to follow the government’s guidelines of self isolating and washing your hands so we can limit the spread of the virus. This is how we will get our venues open again, by limiting the spread and helping our NHS, Police, Fire and Ambulance staff.
