Fort hoping to be ‘Best Bar None’

THE FORT Hotel in Broughty Ferry has been shortlisted to go forward to the Best Bar None finals on March 3.

The prestigious event will be held at The Sheraton Hotel, Edinburgh and is hosted by comedian Fred MacAulay.

Ashley Kellock, Scottish co-ordinator for Best Bar None, commented: “Being shortlisted for the national awards is a real accolade for these premises and they will be judged with other successful bars and clubs from across Scotland. 

“It has been heartening to see how many licensees and their teams really care about customer service and safety.”

The Best Bar None scheme is aimed at promoting responsible management and operation of licensed premises in Scotland. 

It rewards safe and well-managed licensed venues with the issue of a certificate, plaque and the chance to go forward to the national awards ceremony.

 Best Bar None is sponsored by Diageo, Molson Coors and Heineken and is supported by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Business Crime Centre.
