It’s that time of year again as Doncaster is about to serve up its annual Best Bar None awards

The Best Bar None scheme, which was established in 2006, aims to celebrate and reward bars who have excelled in meeting industry standards and promote safe venues for drinking and socialising

The annual awards ceremony will be held on 20th January 2014 at Doncaster Dome, and Andrew Constantine, Business Liaison Officer, who coordinates the scheme in Doncaster says that this year they have received even more nominations than ever.

‘ We are seeing more and more venues across Doncaster who are realising the importance of excellent trading standards.’ said Mr Constantine. ‘it is not enough for a bar to just open up and serve alcohol. They know that they must be responsible retailers, and that they must provide a safe environment, encouraging patrons to drink responsibly.’

Best Bar None’s mission statement is to reduce crime, reward excellence and raise standards of alcohol licensed premises, and Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones, believes that the scheme is doing just that.

She said ‘We have issued 350 Best Bar None awards to premises in Doncaster since 2006, and we hope to continue this work into the new year. We want even more people in Doncaster to recognise the Best Bar None symbol when they enter a venue and know that our bars are amongst the best in the country.’

All venues who achieve the Best Bar None standard will receive a plaque to display in their premises, as well as separate plaques for best in each category, which can be displayed at premises with pride.

The Best Bar none scheme works whereby the assessment of licensed premises is carried out by trained, impartial assessors, who ensure a consistent approach. The assessment criteria is clear and straight forward, and constructive feedback is provided to all entrants.

‘ With last week being Alcohol Awareness Week nationally, it is more timely than ever to celebrate this fantastic Scheme’ said Mayor Jones. ‘ We want people in Doncaster to know that our venues will encourage them to drink responsibly. This includes key things like bar staff not serving people who are already clearly under the influence, and venue staff feeling confident to ask for ID. We also look at wider factors such as robust staff training, effective management and excellent door staff.’
