Best Bar None




Best Bar None is an accreditation scheme supported by the Home Office and the drinks industry which is aimed primarily at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises.

The aim of Best Bar None is to reduce alcohol related crime and disorder, build positive relationships between the licensed trade and the agencies working to support them, improve knowledge and skills of enforcement agencies, licensees and bar staff and to highlight how operating more responsible can improve the profitability of an individual business and attractiveness of a general area.

Licensed premises who apply for accreditation will be guided along the process of meeting the standards through a pre-assessment workshop, advice from the Worcester BID team and will also receive the assessment criteria at least 2 weeks before the assessment meaning that the premises will be fully supported throughout the journey.

The assessment will last between no more than 2 hours and will be carried out by a qualified, impartial assessor. Once licensed premises are accredited they will receive bronze, silver or gold qualifications and will receive publicity within local and trade press and other publications.

If a premises fails to meet the criteria, they will receive guidance on how to improve to reach accreditation. The scheme is designed to help improve businesses, not catch people out!

The assessment period will be through July and August and once every business has reached accreditation, there will be a high profile awards night to celebrate individual businesses and the cities success!
