Highland operators raise the bar

Cru Holdings team

INVERNESS-based bars group Cru Holdings was among those recognised for responsible operating last week when its venues scooped five gongs at the Highland capital’s Best Bar None Awards.

The event, at the Mercure Hotel, saw 22 gongs handed out to licensed trade venues in recognition of their responsible operation and management.

Cru Holdings’ Scotch & Rye and Bar One were awarded gold, with Scotch & Rye also winning best newcomer, while sister outlets Dow’s Bar & Bistro and The Keg scooped silver.

Johnny Foxes and The Den, which won SLTN’s 2017 Social Responsibility Award,  clinched both a gold accreditation and the Innovation in Social Responsibility award.
