Meet the winners of the 2018 Nottingham Best Bar None Awards

Posted on: 12 September 2018

The champagne was flowing last night as over 80 venues celebrated the 2018 Best Bar None Awards. For those of you not in the know, Best Bar None is a national accreditation scheme supported by the Home Office and the drinks industry. The primary aim of the scheme is to promote responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises (essentially keeping us lot safe on a night out).

With over 80 fantastic venues accredited and over 70 of those receiving gold standard accreditation, 2018 has been the biggest and best year yet for Nottingham’s Best Bar None scheme. Whilst we fully believe that every accredited bar deserves recognition and praise for their outstanding work, there could only be one overall winner last night. See the full results below…
