The aim of the Best Bar None Scheme in Exeter is to reduce alcohol related crime, anti-social behaviour and increase business through the delivery of education, training and the promotion of best practice to broaden the appeal of Exeter more especially it’s Evening & Night Time Economy.
WHAT IS BEST BAR NONE?
Best Bar None is a national scheme supported by the Home Office and aimed at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises. It was piloted in Manchester in 2003 and found to improve standards in the night time economy, with premises now competing to participate. It has since been adopted by 100 towns and cities across the UK and is now taken up internationally.
Best Bar None is open to all licensed venues and restaurants in Exeter. To register your interest in joining the scheme please complete the application form and we will arrange for the independent assessor to contact you and book your assessment.
Welcome to Best Bar None Exeter. This independent award for excellence is a way of showing guests that visit our venues that those that display a Best Bar None logo have been independently verified as meeting a higher than normal standard and that they are committed to providing support, safety and security to the guests of Exeter’s hospitality sector. In particular, anyone displaying the Best Bar None Exeter logo has evidenced independently that they:
Have an Ask for Angela scheme in place
Have policy and training on how to help vulnerable people
Have displayed a higher duty of care than the legal requirement
Have agreed to be checked across the year by an independent assessor.
We as a collective welcome feedback from guests via this website on member venues both positive and constructive and we will always pass that feedback direct to venue and update the assessor for their spot checks.
Antisocial and predatory behaviour has no place in our community, especially when we are all out to enjoy ourselves and as such we continue to work with our partners at SAFER EXETER and the SWaN Charter to ensure member venues are the premier venues in the city when it comes to the wellbeing of guests.
The Best Bar None venues look forward to welcoming you in Exeter soon
