Houghton Regis and Dunstable Vie For Best Bar - Vote Now!

Voting is now open for the People’s Choice prize in this year’s Best Bar None Awards.

The Best Bar None awards are designed to help cut alcohol-related crime and disorder in the town by acknowledging and rewarding well-run pubs, bars and clubs.

A number of licensed premises across Dunstable and Houghton Regis have passed the first phase of the of this year’s Best Bar None awards.

The first phase of judging is based on a venue’s ability to meet strict standards relating to licensing and dealing with potential crime and disorder. As well as the assessors picking their overall winner, residents can nominate their favourite venue too.

The following venues are in contention for the awards:


Creasey Park Community FC
Gary Cooper
Grove Theatre
The Old Sugar Loaf
White Lion
White Swan

Houghton Regis

The Kings Arms, Houghton Regis
Go Houghton

Over 1,000 members of the public took the time to vote for their favourite venue in last year’s competition. To vote for your favourite venue this year, you can visit the venue and vote in person, or vote online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/BBN-Vote. Voting closes on Monday 29 July.

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, Executive Member for Community Services at Central Bedfordshire Council, praised the success of this year’s scheme, saying: “The Best Bar None Awards are a great way to recognise the efforts of bars, pubs and clubs who are working hard to make Dunstable and Houghton Regis a safe and appealing place to enjoy a night out.

“Customers can have confidence when visiting any of the accredited premises bearing the Best Bar None logo. They’ll be reassured that the venues have undergone a rigorous assessment to demonstrate that they are consistently meeting high standards.

“Not only do these awards recognise well-run venues, but they can also highlight things that licensees can do to improve, meaning that the standard of local licensed premises rises even further.”

All Best Bar None venues in Central Bedfordshire’s major towns* will receive their accreditation plaques at an awards evening, to be held at Creasey Park Football Club, Dunstable on Monday 16 September (7.30pm). The Overall Winner, the Peoples’ Vote and Innovation honours will also be announced and awarded at the event. The Overall Winner is the venue that scores the highest points.
