A host of Scottish venues have been shortlisted as some of Scotland’s most responsible licensed premises in the Best Bar None National Awards.

The annual awards celebrate the nation’s bars, nightclubs and licensed premises who go the extra mile to promote responsible drinking and customer safety.

Best Bar None, which runs the popular national accreditation scheme of the same name, said it had received the highest calibre of entries yet for the awards. Finalists will attend a ceremony on March 28t in Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro.

Robert Hogg, Best Bar None national co-ordinator, said: “The extremely high calibre of entries to our 2019 Best Bar None Awards proves that Scotland’s licensed trade is playing a leading role in promoting safe, responsible drinking, and customer safety. The judges had a tough time narrowing down to these finalists. We can’t wait to see who takes home the prizes next month and wish all our finalists the best of luck.”
