Local businesses joined the Mayor of Barnsley, Chief Executive Diana Terris and members of the council’s Public Health team to celebrate the Best Bar None Awards on Wednesday 19th September, with over 120 people in attendance.
Mick McDonnell, National Coordinator of Best Bar None, joined Chief Superintendent Scott Green in presenting accreditation certificates to 00 BAR, Annie Murray’s, Arcade Alehouse, Che Bar, Digital, Parkers Café Brasserie, The Corner Pin, The Joseph Bramah, The Open Kitchen ,The Shakespeare, The Silkstone Inn, Wildcats and Zinc.
The winners of the Best Bar None Awards were as follows:
The Best Pub Award went to The Joseph Bramah – a venue which judges said places the welfare of its visitors at the heart of everything it does to ensure people feel safe whilst having a good time.
Best Late Night Venue Award was won by Zinc, which was judged to have gone above and beyond the standard criteria for the Best Bar None accreditation. Being a busy and popular late night venue, the management of Zinc have remained proactive within the night time economy and bridged relations with partner organisations including the council.
The People’s Choice Award gave those who go out in Barnsley the chance to vote for their favourite accredited venue in the town centre. Votes were gathered through an online survey that was circulated widely. The award was scooped up by Annie Murray’s – a clear winner with over 30 per cent of all responses, and a venue which clearly puts the customer at the heart of everything it does.
The 2019 Best Bar None National Awards were also launched at the event, with application packs now available.
