Greene King Best Bar None
As part of our work delivering the national Best Bar None scheme, Six Till Six have been working with Greene King, set to become the first pub operator to have its entire managed house estate accredited by Best Bar None.
The operator of 1,600 managed houses, Greene King has worked with Best Bar None to develop the new multi-site operator accreditation model, which both organisations hope will encourage other pub companies to follow suit.
With its strong focus on customer safety and welfare, Best Bar None says the new model has been tailor made to support and promote best practice within venues, while allowing operators like Greene King to have the opportunity to recognise and reward management teams that are seen to be going above and beyond.
Other benefits of becoming multi-site accredited include: ensuring compliance with the Licensing Act; supporting venue managers to make any required improvements including staff training; encouraging closer examination and monitoring of sites by area managers; and ensuring venues are managed to a consistently high standard across the estate.
In addition to the operational benefits, research shows that customers like the reassurance of knowing a venue is committed to the wellbeing of their customers and staff – 49% of adults are more likely to visit a venue that has measures to improve women’s safety, according to a September 2022 YouGov survey.
For Greene King, full accreditation of all 1,600 managed house venues is on track to be completed by spring 2023.
