The King’s Highway, in Inverness, is celebrating gold in the Scottish town’s annual Best Bar None awards.
Pub manager Mark Phinn, pictured with colleagues Andrea Taylor (left) and Carol Mackay, said: “It’s the first year that we’ve managed a gold award, after a bronze and two silvers, so we are all extremely pleased.”
At the Best Bar None awards ceremony, Inverness’s best bars, pubs and clubs are recognised for their customer care and commitment to a safer city centre.
The aim of the awards, judged by licensing officers and environmental health officials, is to reduce alcohol-related crime and disorder in the city centre.
It promotes dialogue between agencies and licensees and increases the safety of licensed premises, by working with Inverness BID, the licensed trade, the Highland and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, the council and the Northern Constabulary.
Craig Duncan, Inverness Business Improvement District (BID) chairman, said: “The awards are hugely important, and the scheme works towards establishing the best-run establishments in the town.”
