Welcome to Cornwall Best Bar None

The Cornwall Best Bar None Scheme exists to make the national Best Bar None accreditation standard available to alcohol licensed premises in Cornwall.

Best Bar None accreditation reflects excellent management practice, shows commitment to raising standards and enhancing the customer experience in licensed premises. It also aims to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol abuse - such as binge drinking - whilst also highlighting how operating more responsibly can improve the profitability of an individual business and the attractiveness of a general area.  

The Cornwall scheme was launched in 2010 and is currently the only scheme in the country that is based on a county area. It provides an opportunity to all town centre premises licensed to sell alcohol to aspire to ‘Bydh an Gwella’ – ‘Be The Best’. The Scheme is accredited by the National Best Bar None organisation.

Cornwall Best Bar None works in partnership with the licensed trade, Cornwall Council and the Police to support licensed premises in applying to become Best Bar None. This partnership ensures a wide range of expertise is available but the scheme is not allied to any specific business interests – local or national – and its administration is independent of regulatory agencies or organisations.

Achieving Best Bar None Accreditation is an accolade that requires licensees to reflect on the management practices they apply to their premises, identifying what is excellent and improving standards where required. It also attracts attention for all the right reasons – from regular customers, potential new business and those involved in the licensed trade. In these challenging economic times being recognised as a venue that aspires to provide the very best customer experience can only be positive. Best Bar None is a national brand and visitors to Cornwall will be aware of the standards it delivers for people using accredited premises.

This site will provide access to all things ‘Best Bar None’ and will celebrate and promote those licensed premises that achieve accreditation.
