The search is on to find the top pub, bar or licensed premise in the East Riding to compete against the best in the UK.
Best Bar None is a national scheme held every other year and on 5 March at the Bridlington Spa East Riding of Yorkshire Council is launching the start of the local search.
Those attending will be from among the 1,200 bars, pubs and licensed premises across the East Riding as well as representatives from local Pubwatches.
Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for community involvement and performance, said: “The bar and leisure industry is an important part of the night time economy of the East Riding.
“Best Bar None recognises those who run licensed premises to the highest standards of safety and promote the licensing objectives. We are also looking for that bar or pub that works well with the council, which is the licensing authority, and with the police, to the benefit of the local community.”
Those entering the scheme will be assessed by officers from the council’s licensing, public health, food standards, health and safety and environmental health teams and Humberside Police.
