Second Best Bar None Silver Plaque Award for Corbie Inn
presented at City Night Club, Falkirk
At a presentation, held earlier last month, in the City Night Club in Falkirk, the Corbie Inn was presented with their second framed Certificate and Silver Award Plaque in recognition of achieving the required level of accreditation in the annual scheme to improve licensed premises in Scotland.
Best Bar None helps in creating a safer drinking environment that is good for everyone; customers, owners, the wider community, licensees, bar staff in addition to developing good relations with police, fire and other partner agencies.
The Best Bar None Awards Scheme is sponsored by Diageo, Molson Coors and HEINEKEN together with the Scottish Government and is an integral part of the Safer Areas Initiatives within Scotland and works together with licensed premises to create a safer and more welcoming city and town centre environments.
It rewards safe and well-managed licensed venues with the issue of a display plaque which can be used to promote the venue.
The scheme focuses on safety and customer care, and gives each licensed venue the opportunity to prove it meets a standard of operation set in consultation with the government and alcohol industry at a national level.
Standards need to be achieved to get accredited
The award scheme is not simply a rubber-stamping exercise but a 4-stage process with required criteria needing to be achieve before accreditation is given:
- The Application
- All licensed venues are invited to apply for an application and best practice booklet.
- The Inspection (covering)
- Prevention of Crime & Disorder
- Protection of Public Safety
- Protection of the Environment
- Promotion of Public Health
- Protection of Children from Harm
- Each application is inspected and points allocated for “Essential”, “Desired” and “Bonus” categories with all essential points being required to receive an ‘accredited’ award.
- Additional points are given for achieving higher standards.
Again this year we are all proud to have been recognised again in 2013 and the plaque and certificate will be getting pride of place in the pub along with last year’s award!
