Easterbrook Hall at The Crichton in Dumfries has this week received the Gold Standard Regional Award at the Dumfries & Galloway Best Bar None Local Awards ceremony. As well as hosting the event in Easterbrook Hall and accepting their award, the team also received news of their success in the shortlisting phase of the National Best Bar None Awards, which will take place at Dunblane Hydro on Thursday 19th March, 2020.
After completing an assessment process with a Best Bar None assessor, Easterbrook Hall achieved the Gold Standard Award, which demonstrates the commitment of their management team when it comes to ensuring the safety of their staff and customers.
There was more good news for the team, as Easterbrook Hall also received news of their success in the National awards process. Easterbrook Hall has also been shortlisted in the Specialist Entertainment Venue category of the National Best Bar None Awards in 2020 and will now compete with other venues throughout Scotland in their efforts to bring the award home to Dumfries & Galloway.
Best Bar None is administered nationally by the Scottish Business Resilience Centre and is supported and sponsored by leading members of the drinks industry to promote social responsibility. Best Bar None work with entertainment venues throughout Scotland to reduce crime, improve safety, reward excellence and raise standards in licensed premises. Their local and national awards provide them with a platform to reward excellence in the industry.
Fiona Rands, Venue Manager at Easterbrook Hall said: “We take our social responsibilities as a licensed venue very seriously at Easterbrook Hall and so we are delighted to have received the Gold Standard Award from Best Bar None and to be recognised nationally for our efforts in the Specialist Entertainment Venue category too. We now look forward to attending the national awards ceremony in March.”
