A Bo’ness bar has been held up as a shining example in West Lothian of a successful national iniative to create safe and responsible drinking environments.

The Best Bar None scheme 
focuses on safety and customer care, and gives each venue the opportunity to prove it meets a certain standard set in consultation with the alcohol industry.

After picking up national recognition for its outstanding work in the community, the owner of The Corbie Inn in Bo’ness talked about what it means to be part of the Best Bar None (BBN) Scotland initiative.

Corbie Inn Proprietor, Gail Fairholm, said:“When we were first approached by BBN we were apprehensive as it sounded like a lot of work to match all the necessary criteria. However, I have to say I am so glad we did.

“Going through the process to become accredited was a great team bonding exercise for us. It was really useful to work on issues such as fire safety, police engagement and security, all aspects which are vital to the safe and responsible running of any good licensed venue.” More information is available at:
