Best Bar None
Best Bar None is a scheme aimed at reducing alcohol related crime and disorder, working towards creating safe, vibrant town centre where people can enjoy a night out in a well managed venue. 

Best Bar None schemes can be found across the UK. The Leighton-Linslade scheme was launched in 2016 and amazingly 7 venues successfully gained accreditation in the first year.
