Awards and giving customers peace of mind

All venues who achieve Best Bar None accreditation receive a plaque and window sticker to proudly display in venue. In addition, awards are in place to commend and further publicise those venues who go above and beyond the basic criteria in the following ways:

  • Overall Winner & Runner-up
    A points based award. The venue who has achieved the most points in their assessment will be awarded overall winner
  • Peoples Vote Winner & Runner-up
    This award is voted on by the public. See in venue and on social media for more information
  • Innovation Award
    This award, new in 2019 is to encourage venues to work with their staff to promote the Best Bar None Central Bedfordshire annual theme. This year’s theme is Vulnerability. With more and more cases appearing both locally and nationally, the issue of vulnerability and how venue staff can support vulnerable patrons is increasing in importance
