Woking's Best Bar None is calling last orders as patrons of local pubs, bars and restaurants have less than two weeks left to vote for their favourite pub, bar or restaurant in the Borough. The winning premises will be crowned winner of the Woking Advertiser Public Choice Award and announced at the Woking Best Bar None awards evening on Monday 30 September.
31 local pubs, bars and restaurants have registered for the Woking Best Bar None scheme, which is sponsored by local drinks firm, Miller Brands UK. The scheme, which is now in its second year, aims to promote and encourage the responsible management and operation of licensed premises across the Borough. It seeks to recognise and reward licensed premises that provide a safe, responsible environment in which everyone can enjoy an evening out.
Voting for your favourite pub, bar or restaurant couldn't be easier - simply text `BBN' followed by the name of your favourite venue to 66644 by 5pm on Friday 30 August 2013. Texts cost the standard network rate. You can also vote on the Woking Best Bar None website at www.wokingbbn.co.uk/vote.aspx
Everyone who votes will be entered into a prize draw for their chance to win an iPad mini, courtesy of Woking Best Bar None sponsors, Miller Brands UK.
Jonathan Bennett, Head of Corporate Affairs for Miller Brands UK, said: "We have been proud to support Best Bar None in Woking for the second year. It's at the heart of the community as it encourages responsibility within licensed premises, whilst ensuring a safe night-time economy. Venues across the Borough have really got behind Best Bar None, with many premises registering with the scheme, and I'd encourage anyone who hasn't already voted for their favourite premises, to get voting!"
As well as the Woking Advertiser Best Bar None Public Choice Award, venues that have registered will have the chance to win one of eight other awards; the Miller Brands UK Overall Best Bar None, Best Bar, Best Late Bar, Best Local Pub, Best Town Centre Pub, Best Food-Led Pub, Best Restaurant and the Services to Licensing Award. Winners will be chosen by an independent panel of judges, which includes local MP, Jonathan Lord.
Woking Best Bar None is sponsored by Miller Brands UK, and supported by the Woking Advertiser, Eagle Radio, Surrey Alcohol Responsibility Initiative (SARI) and Drinkaware.
