Best Bar None

Woking Borough Council is delighted to invite you to participate in the return of the Woking Best Bar None Awards, in partnership with Asahi UK. Woking Best Bar None 2018 is open to all pubs, bars and restaurants licensed by the Council, offering the opportunity to achieve Gold, Silver or Bronze status.

Best Bar None is a national accreditation and award scheme helping public bodies and the licensed trade improve standards well beyond the legal minimum requirements. Supported by the Home Office and the drinks industry, Best Bar None’s primary aim is to promote responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises, while developing positive partnerships between police, local authorities and the licensed trade.

Best Bar None raises standards by rewarding excellence through annual awards, and by identifying and sharing best practice at a local level. It will help managers of pubs, bars and restaurants promote themselves as safe and responsible licensed premises, and contribute to a safer night time economy and increased local footfall as a result.

Participating in Best Bar None enables you to:

  • Achieve Gold, Silver or Bronze accreditation status (a certificate, plaque and/or window sticker for your premises)

  • Promote your venue through the Best Bar None app and website (once accreditation has been achieved)

  • Increase footfall through presence on Best Bar None app and website

  • Improve partnership working with Woking Borough Council and Surrey Police

  • Feature your premise in the local press

Assessments will take place during off-peak hours in May and June.

Members of the Woking Best Bar None Steering Group will be speaking to licensed premises further, either by phone or in person, to answer any questions you might have.

More information about the scheme, including award categories, the application process and other benefits of participation will be available when the new Woking Best Bar None website goes live in due course.

We look forward to working with you to help enhance Woking’s vibrant nightlife.
