Three of Ruddington’s licensed premises were celebrating in September after receiving coveted accreditations from the Best Bar None scheme. The Country Cottage Hotel, Ruddington Arms and Victoria Tavern were all presented with certificates recognising their status as safe, well-operated venues.
The Best Bar None scheme is a national initiative that’s been run in Nottingham by the Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) for the last four years. Licensed premises who apply for accreditation are inspected and assessed across a range of areas such as crime and disorder prevention, safety and customer care, and membership of community schemes such as Pub Watch.
Lindsey Flint, manager of the Victoria Tavern (pictured) comments: ‘Everyone at the Tavern is delighted to have been awarded Best Bar None accreditation with Merit. The award is testament to all the hard work that my team put in to keep the pub running smoothly and safely. I’d like to congratulate the Ruddington Arms and Country Cottage on their own accreditations, particularly the Country Cottage which has been put forward for the county-wide awards.’
