A Glenrothes pub has been nominated for a prestigious award at the Best Bar None (BBN) Scotland National Awards 2017-18.

Pinkerton’s Bar on Pinkerton Road is one of the finalists in the Best Independent Pub category, one of just four Fife establishments to be nominated for an award.

Staff will find out if they have won at a ceremony at the Dunblane Hydro Hotel on March 29.

Arlene Campbell, national lead for Best Bar None Scotland, said: “The National Best Bar None Awards continue to grow year on year and it’s great to see 53 venues from 16 areas of Scotland being represented to showcase the commitment and support these venues offer their customers and local communities.

“Since the scheme was introduced in Scotland in 2005, Best Bar None accredited venues are continuously ‘Raising the Bar’ and as always, judging is difficult given the range of our finalists.

“I’d like to extend my congratulations to our finalists and wish them all the best on the night and thank our Sponsors – without whom the event would not be such a success.”

The awards celebrate the best venues in Scotland of the 430 which are Best Bar None accredited.

Mandy Haeburn-Little, chair of BBN Scotland, said: “Best Bar None is going from strength to strength as it rolls out across Scotland. Indigo has been a driving force in our communications support for the past three years and we are delighted to welcome them on board as an official partner of our National Awards.

“We are particularly keen to draw more attention to the range of benefits that BBN membership delivers for licenced premises in Scotland, which range from a 1000 seater venue to small venues which can bring communities together.”
