Time to Place Your Votes For The Best Bars Around!

The nominations are in, and now it's up to the voting public to select their local winner of the Best Bar None Awards 2018.



Eight licensed premises across Dunstable and Houghton Regis have been accredited after entering this year’s Best Bar None awards. The awards are designed to help cut alcohol-related crime and disorder in the towns by recognising well-run pubs, bars and clubs.

This year’s Best Bar None is the biggest so far, with a record number of pubs, bars and clubs entering. Judging is based on a venue’s ability to meet strict standards in areas around licensing, crime and disorder.

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, Executive Member for Community Services at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “The Best Bar None Awards are a great way to recognise the efforts of pubs, bars and clubs who are working hard to make Dunstable and Houghton Regis an attractive place to enjoy a night out in. Not only do the awards recognise well-run venues, they also highlight areas where licensees can improve their practices, allowing the standard of licensed premises in the area to rise even further.”
