INVERNESS CELEBRATES A SAFE NIGHT OUT AT 2019/20 BEST BAR NONE AWARDS

Safety was at the top of the agenda at the recent Best Bar None Awards in Inverness, where venues from across the city were recognised for raising safety standards, reducing alcohol related crime, and ensuring everyone can enjoy a safe night out.

In total, 23 licensed premises were accredited under the Best Bar None Scheme for their outstanding efforts in helping to create a safer environment for the public. Each venue that applied was visited by an independent assessor and judged on their efforts around the prevention of crime and disorder and securing public safety. Out of the 23 venues; 19 were awarded gold accreditation, three silver and one bronze.

The big winners on the night, which all can now apply for the National Best Bar None Awards in March, were The Auctioneers which won best pub/bar; Scotch & Rye won best independent pub/bar; Johnny Foxes & The Den was given best late night pub/bar; and The Chieftain Hotel won best hotel bar. Special awards were given to Angel’s Share for best newcomer, The Chieftan Hotel was given the heart of the community award and Johnny Foxes & The Den was recognised for its innovation in social responsibility.

Best Bar None Inverness, and Inverness Pubwatch Co-ordinator, John McDonald, comments: “I would like to congratulate all the venues which have taken part in the scheme this year in Inverness, all of which have demonstrated a real commitment to raising safety standards and ensuring everyone can enjoy a safe night out.”

McDonald adds: “A huge well done to all the main award winners, these venues went ‘over and above’ in their efforts to ensure the Inverness night-time economy is a safe, friendly and thriving environment for everyone to enjoy.” 

The Category Award Winners go through to the National BBN Awards due to be held on 19th March at the Dunblane Hydro.
