Airdrie and Coatbridge

Venues celebrate in North Lanarkshire!

News Release

Pubs and clubs continue to set high bar for standards

Pub and club owners and licensees have swapped pulling pints for pulling awards in an innovative safety and standards scheme.

The Best Bar None scheme celebrates the efforts of the licensed trade in Airdrie and Coatbridge to improve customer satisfaction and facilities, reduce anti-social behaviour and promote the responsible management and operation of licensed premises.

At a ceremony in January, 12 awards were presented to local licensed premises including The Imperial Bar in Airdrie which was named as the overall winner.

In addition, gold and silver awards were presented to premises which achieved standards set out by the Best Bar None scheme.

The initiative, launched in 2013, is supported by North Lanarkshire Council, Police Scotland and the Scottish Government.

The winners from Airdrie and Coatbridge will now be nominated for the Best Bar None national finals taking place in Glasgow during March.

Council Leader, Councillor Jim Logue said: “The awards play a vital part in recognising the efforts of the licensed trade to raise standards of both premises and behaviour.

“When it was first launched, there was an immediate impact on incidences of anti-social behaviour and thanks to the joint efforts of the Community Safety Partnership and the licensees this has been maintained.

 “I wish all the local winners ‘good luck’ in the forthcoming finals.”

 The awards were presented by North Lanarkshire’s Depute Provost Councillor Jean Jones and Jim Robertson, a local Procurator Fiscal and well-known local after dinner speaker.
