Arlene Campbell, National Lead for Best Bar None Scotland said:


“The Best Bar None Awards get bigger every year and have become the recognised badge of high standards in the licensed trade.


“I’d like to congratulate all of the Kilmarnock venues on their awards and it is great to see the Best Bar None scheme becoming established in the area during its first year of operation.”


Best Bar None Local Co-ordinator for Kilmarnock, PC Marshall said:


“This is our first year of rolling out the scheme in Kilmarnock and I am delighted with the interest that has been shown.


“Best Bar None is great opportunity for premises and partner agencies in the Kilmarnock area to work together in order to maintain safe and welcoming licensed venues. The process is very straightforward and Police Scotland and Council licensing staff are available to assist participants at all stages.


“I would encourage all licensed premises in Kilmarnock to find out about the scheme, It is our ambition to ensure that the day and night time economy of the town is enhanced and supported by BBN by ensuring venues provide, and customers receive the very best quality experience”.
