    Nottinghams Best Bar None Winners Revealed

    A number of Nottingham’s outstanding pubs and bars have been awarded for their safe practices, in the announcement of this year’s Nottingham Best Bar None Awards.

    The awards are a local take on the UK-wide scheme which aims to make areas a safer place to visit at night by encouraging the managers and operators of pubs, bars and clubs to take as many steps as they can to ensure they provide a safe environment for their customers to enjoy.

    Nottingham’s scheme presents a set of awards decided on by an independent panel of Licensing experts and another set decided on through a Public vote.

    The big winners of the night, scooping the award for

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect
