Wetherspoon’s magnificent seven celebrate an award-winning approach to responsible drinking.
All seven Glasgow city-centre Wetherspoon pubs have been recognised in the annual Best Bar None awards.
The scheme, now in its sixth year, has been developed in partnership with Strathclyde Police, Scottish Late Night Operators’ Association, Scottish Licensed Trade Association and Glasgow City Centre Alcohol Action Group.
Five of the seven pubs gained a gold award at the 2010 presentation ceremony. They are The Counting House in St Vincents Place, The Crystal Palace in Jamaica Street, The Sir John Moore in Argyle Street, The Society Room in West George Street and Sir John Stirling Maxwell in Kilmarnock Road.
The Edward Wylie, in Bothwell Street, achieved a silver award, while The Hengler’s Circus, in Sauchiehall Street, was awarded a bronze.
Gary Broadhurst, pub manager at Sir John Stirling Maxwell, was also voted ‘best newcomer’, the first to win the city’s inaugural award.
The Best Bar None scheme is designed to encourage licensees to create a safer environment for residents and visitors to the city.
