Championing Best Practice - Best Bar None National Awards 2018/19

An Edinburgh venue has been recognised as the National Champion in Scotland by Best Bar None (BBN), a nation-wide scheme which “raises the bar” on standards in licensed venues across Scotland resulting in safer communities and a vibrant social economy. The National scheme supports venues delivery of safe and inclusive social spaces, whilst rewarding social responsibility and duty of care. Key Partners and trade from across Scotland celebrated the licenced trade’s achievements at an awards evening on Thursday 28th March at the DoubleTree Dunblane Hydro Hotel in Dunblane. It was a successful evening for the Black Rose Tavern, Edinburgh who scooped the overall national winner and also won the award for Best Independant Pub, Innovation in Social Responsibility and was awarded a Platinum Award for consistent commitment to best practice within the licensed trade. 

At the 2018-19 awards ceremony, a number of outstanding venues from across Scotland were recognised as being amongst the premium licensed establishments in the country. The venues have considered not only 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.
