The Best Bar None awards are granted to pubs, clubs, bars and leisure complexes that are doing all they can to cut down on alcohol related crime and promote responsible drinking. The awards event provided an opportunity to acknowledge all those businesses in Ceredigion who are committed to continually raising standards in their premises.

Both residents and visitors to Ceredigion benefit from involvement in the BBN scheme, being able to reap the rewards of a night-time economy that is more welcoming, attractive, lively and above all – safer.

There were 19 successful Ceredigion businesses who gained the Best Bar None accolade for 2013/14; 3 gained Special Commendations from the Judges; 6 gained Best in Category Awards and Lee Price, from the Royal Pier, was awarded the Overall Winner’s plaque.
