The team behind the Best Bar None initiative met at the Dove Street Inn, in St Helen’s Street, yesterday.

The pub has previously won the Best Bar None gong and the owners of the establishment were full of praise for the project and how it helps the night-time economy in Ipswich.

Ady Smith, the owner of the pub said: “We received our mark, or accreditation as it is also known, and were really pleased that we met the standards required to be recognised.”

“However, we were completely bowled over when we found out we had won the best accolade of all - the Ipswich Best Bar None Premises of the Year Overall Award 2012.”

“A campaign which spreads this word to potential customers for me about this will be the icing on the cake.”

“Many independent businesses do not have the time, money or skills to carry out their own marketing so to benefit from a campaign of this scale is well worth it for the £45 application fee.”
