Perth venues pick up safety gongs

MORE than 20 bars and nightclubs in Perth have been recognised for maintaining high standards in safety and customer service.

The Best Bar None Awards scheme honoured a total of 21 venues at the 2012 awards ceremony last month. Four outlets – the Twa Tams, Salutation Hotel, Old Ship Inn and City – took gold awards and will go forward to the national awards in March.
Ashley Kellock, Scottish co-ordinator for Best Bar None, said: “This is a brilliant result for each of the winners and for Perth itself.
“It means that locals and visitors in the area can be assured of a warm welcome and a safe night out if they choose one of these award winning venues.”
