Sarah McKenzie, BBN Co-ordinator for Falkirk said:

“Best Bar None focuses on customer safety and care and each venue that gains an award has demonstrated that it meets the standards set by the Government and the alcohol industry at a national level.

“We work with our accredited venues and our partner agencies in Police Scotland, the Scottish Business Resilience Centre, Falkirk Delivers and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to deliver a safer and welcoming night time experience for customers.

“Anyone looking for a good, safe night out should look out for a Best Bar None venue knowing it has been through a rigorous accreditation process and demonstrated high standards across a range of important criteria.

“I would like to thank those involved for their continued support and to offer my congratulations to all the premises who have taken part this year.”
