Best Bar None scheme

The Best Bar None scheme aims to promote positive relations and responsible management in the operation of licensed premises in Scotland.

The scheme is sponsored by Diageo, Molson Coors, Heineken, Tennents and Maxxium.

The scheme is being offered throughout the whole of the Scottish Borders to pubs, bars, clubs or hotels that can demonstrate a commitment to a safer and more secure environment for the public.

  • Media interest in your premises.
  • Public perception that your premises are a quality venue, serious about customer care and safety and that the town you trade in is a safe environment.
  • Recipients become holders of a nationally accredited award that will be recognised by visitors from outside the Scottish Borders.
  • Use of the Best Bar None brand in your advertising.
