We strongly support many Best Bar None schemes. Over the last year around 40 of our restaurants and pubs have won or received accreditations through the scheme. We will continue to support and encourage the development of Best Bar None across the UK.It is company policy for all managers to join and support their local Pubwatch, if one exists. We believe Pubwatch schemes promote best practice among pub managers to help combat licensing issues and support our businesses in dealing with any local incidents in a practical and proactive way.Mitchellss Butlers supports a number of Business Improvement Districts schemes (BIDs) including Broad Street Birmingham and also Nottingham. We view BIDs as an important channel to reduce crime, build relationships with key authorities and provide a platform for benefitting the local area.We also actively encourage our managers, and regional managers to become involved in community safety partnerships and other related schemes.
