Best Bar None awards

Best Bar None accreditation is awarded to venues that are outstanding in every way. The scheme rewards premises that are raising the standard by taking pride in their surroundings, operating responsibly and demonstrating a commitment to reducing alcohol related crime, resulting in an enhanced customer experience.

Best Bar None is a National Accreditation and Award Scheme supported by the Home Office, and was held in Gloucester for the first time in 2015. This year, venues were assessed against 42 essential national criteria in order to achieve Best Bar None Accreditation.  Venues which achieve accreditation then compete to be the best licensed premises in the city centre.
