Join our Home-office backed scheme for well-run night time premises

Sheffield City Council, in partnership with Sheffield BID and South Yorkshire Police, leads on Sheffield’s Best Bar None scheme, which is now entering into its 12th year.  

Best Bar None is a national Home Office supported accreditation scheme recognising responsible licensing practice in line with the four core licensing objectives. For over a decade Sheffield has benefited from having over 40+ premises accredited locally.

The local scheme is open to premises operating within the city centre ring road.

It culminates annually in an awards ceremony which celebrates the achievement of all of the premises as well as awarding runner up and winner status in each of the categories:

  • Best Pub 
  • Best Bar/ Late Bar
  • Best Nightclub
  • Best Chain 
  • Best Entertainment Venue
  • People’s Choice
  • Best Bar None Overall
